The Macedonian parliament has amended the constitution to rename the country as the Republic of Northern Macedonia.

Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev secured the required majority in parliament on Friday that was needed to rename the country in line with a landmark agreement with Greece to end a decades-long dispute.

Yannis Koutsomitis, a European affairs analyst and columnist in Athens, talks to Al Jazeera about the significance of the name change.
