Thirty years since Macedonia joined the UN


On April 8, 1993, by acclamation in the General Assembly of the United Nations, the country was admitted to 181 full members of the World Organization, based on the resolution 817 of the UN Security Council of April 7, 1993.
With that, its international legal subjectivity was confirmed after the expressed referendum will of the Macedonian citizens on September 8, 1991 for an independent country.
However, due to the opposition and pressures of Greece, the membership in the UN was not done under the then constitutional name Republic of Macedonia but under the temporary reference Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. After a long-standing dispute, the Prespa Agreement was reached with the mediation of the UN, which resulted in the change of the constitutional name to the Republic of North Macedonia. This opened the country’s path to NATO and the EU.
