Greece and Macedonia reached a historic settlement Tuesday to their long-simmering dispute over the name Macedonia — shared by the former Yugoslav republic and an ancient region of northern Greece.

希腊和马其顿星期二达成历史性协议,结束了两国长期以来在“马其顿”名称上的争端。前南斯拉夫共和国马其顿的名称与希腊北部一个古老地区的名称一样。

Under the deal between the two prime ministers, the country will now be called The Republic of North Macedonia.

根据两国总理达成的协议,前南斯拉夫共和国的正式名称将为“北马其顿共和国”。

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said the deal ends any claim he believes Macedonia may have had on Greek territory.

希腊总理齐普拉斯说,这项协议从此消除了任何原马其顿共和国可能对希腊领土的主权声索。

Greece will also stop blocking Macedonia's efforts to join NATO and the European Union.

希腊将不再阻止北马其顿加入北约和欧盟。

European Council President Donald Tusk congratulated both sides. “Thanks to you, the impossible is becoming possible,” he tweeted.

欧盟委员会塔斯克向希腊和马其顿两国表示祝贺,在推特上发文说:“谢谢你们将不可能变为可能。”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the deal and Macedonia’s possible membership “will help to consolidate peace and stability across the wider Western Balkans.”

北约秘书长斯托尔滕伯格说,这项协议以及北马其顿可能获得的北约成员资格将有助于巩固西巴尔干地区的和平与稳定。

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the deal will bolster regional security and prosperity and that the United States congratulates both prime ministers for their "vision, courage and persistence."

美国国务院发言人诺尔特说,这项协议将加强地区安全和繁荣,美国对两国总理的“远见、勇气和执着”表示祝贺。
