“Polls show that more than 75 percent of our citizens are in favor of NATO and European Union [membership],” Zaev told the BBC, cited by Greek daily Katimerini.

A referendum on the name accord, under which the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) will be renamed the Republic of North Macedonia is expected to take place in September or in October, the report noted.
