Macedonia's parliament has passed a constitutional amendment to rename the European country the Republic of North Macedonia. Friday's decision aims to settle a decades-long row with neighboring Greece. Eighty-one deputies in the 120-seat parliament voted in favor. Representatives of the opposition boycotted the vote. Macedonia and Greece struck the deal on the new name in June, but the change also has to be approved by the Greek parliament before coming into effect.
