Greece, N. Macedonia upgrade diplomatic missions to embassies after name deal
Greece has upgraded its diplomatic mission to North Macedonia’s capital of Skopje to an embassy. The move followed a deal to normalize relations with its neighbor – which renamed itself from Macedonia.
The Foreign Ministry in Athens said on Friday it is also upgrading its representation in North Macedonia’s southern town of Bitola to a general consulate.
