A new European nation on the football map Can't Post or Reply Privately

OK so a tabloid headline to grab your attention. The Former Yugoslavia Republic of Macedonia now becomes Republic of North Macedonia, after the governments of Macedonia and Greece have settled their differences on the name of the country and Greek region. The new name still has to be ratified by both national governments but this shouldn't cause any problems.

I thought that was the sounds of asterisks being scribbled into the margins...

In the UN General Assembly, will they be moved from the 'F's to the 'R's or the 'N's?
Presumably that's a lot of phone books being pulped......

Isn't Kazakhstan now supposed to be spelt Qazaqstan?
This is the Kazakh rather than the Russian spelling.

I don't know how this will come out on here, but I believe both the Russians and Kazakhstan spell it Қазақстан

You won't have that problem for much longer. President Nazarbayev passed a decree last year saying the government would transition from using cyrillic to the latin alphabet by 2025. The new alphabet will eliminate apostrophes, so Kazakh (or Qazaq) grocer's will breathe easy.

Would that be the North Macedonians or the Greek Macedonians?
