🇲🇰 🇬🇷 North Macedonia, 🇮🇷 Millions to mark 40th 1 day ago   02:53

Al Jazeera English
For three decades, North Macedonia and Greece have fought over which name Greece's neighbour would adopt, and its claim to Alexander the Great as its national hero.
During that time, their economic ties have quietly grown.
Now that political issues have been laid to rest, the two countries are discovering that a close economic relationship could be the basis for a future friendship.
Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Skopje.

greeks are welcome to macedonia , we have good dentists that are the cheapest in europe and asia . shopping is cheap and monthly salary is less than a greek pension . if greek businesses are smart they will move over to macedonia . like the lady said in greece you would to go to different departments and they will send you all over the place and the quality is much better in macedonia .
Finally a Macedonian Disneyland

Modern Macedonians are former ethnic bulgarians who speak a bulgarian linguistic continuum , have bulgaroserbian names, appearance, toponyms and are brainwashed to the bone! They are the only ones with tdifferent history in all balkan region! ahhahahah!

The dependency of FYROM (North Macedonia) on Greece was/is huge. Yet they've been performing cultural and historical theft for decades.
The dentist in the video is one of many thousands in North Macedonia that are descendants of Greeks who as children were abducted by the communists during the Greek civil war and brought up in Yugoslavia. One could say that these people are 'slavicised' Macedonians. Obviously the other Slavs of North Macedonia have no relation to Macedonia proper (i.e. ancient Macedonia).
Wow they been like rivals

Let's see... in the near future will they accept to speak Greek as an only way to be connected with Makedonia (not Makedonija) and its past...?
I hope now the Greeks from South Macedonia let them live without blocking everything
John Carr
Greece annexed about half of Macedonia in 1912-13. Many ethnic Macedonians were expelled in the process. In 1921-1922, hundreds of thousands of Greek refugees fleeing genocide in Ottoman Turkey were settled in this part of Macedonia, dramatically changing its ethnic makeup. The remaining Macedonians were subjected to multiple cultural and linguistic restrictions. Many were again deported during the Greek Civil War. When Yugoslavia's disintegration led to Macedonia's independence, Greece officially launched a national myth that everything Macedonian is Greek and started punishing independent Macedonia for being its humble self. The renaming of Macedonia under the Prespa treaty is illegal and undemocratic. Greece still denies the existence of ethnic Macedonians anywhere in the world.
I'm surprise Bulgaria didn't want a piece of North Macedonia?
Islamic Heart
i seriously dont understand why no media that is apperantly independent explain or make a documentary to explain how half of so called "north macedonia" belongs to albanians ...and has been for thousands of years...just simply appalling

Iran's revolution was carried out by an older generation enraged by the inequality they lived under the Shah's regime.
Today, members of a younger generation are expressing their discontent with the economic hardships they endure and are hoping to leave Iran.

Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons spoke to ordinary Iranians, to assess the mood of the nation as it marks 40 years since the Islamic Revolution.
