(You'll see the acronym FYROM on Google Maps.) In addition to causing confusion, the similar names have been a stumbling block for the nation of Macedonia to join the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation because of Greece's objections.

The accord still has to be approved by both countries' parliaments and pass in a referendum in Macedonia.

The Greek and Macedonian foreign ministers signed the deal Sunday with Prime Ministers Alexis Tsipras and Zoran Zaev, respectively, looking on.

FYROM Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Greek Prime Ministers Alexis Tsipras will witness the signing of the agreement by their foreign ministers on the borderlines, according to official announcements. Before the signing, prime ministers of Macedonia and Greece Zoran Zaev and Alexis Tsipras delivered speeches at the ceremony attended by EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn and United Nations mediator in the dispute Matthew Nimetz.

The deal was met with fury by critics in both countries, who accuse their respective prime ministers of conceding too much.

The Macedonian parliament is scheduled to start debating the agreement next week, amid concern President Gjorge Ivanov will exercise a one-time veto option to block the deal that the nationalist opposition has called a "capitulation".

The deal will also allow Macedonia to try to join North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union.

Macedonia was admitted to the United Nations in 1993 under the provisional name of the "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", but more than 120 countries including Russian Federation and the United States have recognized the Balkan country under the name of "Republic of Macedonia".

Elon Musk says Tesla factory was sabotaged by disgruntled employee
Musk said the reorganization did not affect hourly assembly-line employees and was not expected to delay manufacturing targets. Last week, Elon Musk announced that the company would be letting go around 9% of its workforce as part of a " reorg ".

On Sunday, police fired teargas to displace protesters demonstrating against the deal who tried to break through a police cordon to reach the area where the deal was being signed, Ekathimerini reported.

Zaev called on the two countries to "step out of the past and look to the future", saying: "Our peoples want peace. we will be partners and allies". "It's what our ancestors were and what we will never cease to be", said one elderly woman in Skopje.

But the government suffered a loss in its parliamentary majority after lawmaker Dimitris Kammenos of the nationalist Independent Greeks, the government's junior coalition partner, voted in favor.

The Macedonian-Greek dispute, which emerged after Macedonia declared independence from former Yugoslavia back in 1991, erupted because of fears in Athens that newly independent Macedonia might claim territories gained by Greece following the Second Balkan war in 1913.

The subject is a deeply emotional one for many Greeks.

Following the referendum and the constitutional changes, Greece should ratify the deal at the end of the year.

"We are Macedonians and we will always be Macedonians", said an elderly man.
