Macedonia: Zaev announces renaming of Skopje airport, country’s main motorway

Macedonia’s Prime Minister has announced the renaming of the airport of Skopje and the country’s main motorway leading to Greece, in joint statements with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras following their meeting in Davos.

Zoran Zaev noted that these actions, which his government will undertake, prove that his country has no territorial claims against its neighbour.

Greece, Zaev said, will allow the former Yugoslav republic to strengthen its co-operation with the EU and international organizations.

Skopje Airport and the main highway were renamed Alexander the Great in 2006 and 2008, respectively, by the government of Nikola Gruevski.
