22 years ago, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), was accepted as the 181st member of the United Nations Organization. Today, this date is being marked by state authorities in Skopje.

The president of the country, George Ivanov declared that with the accession in this organization, the state proved its international subjectivity based on the will shown in the people’s referendum on September 8, 1991 for an independent state.

However, because of the objection of the Greek side, which doesn’t the constitutional name of “Macedonia”, UN accession has been made under the reference FYROM.

Up until now, FYROM has diplomatic relations with 170 countries of the world, while it has been accepted by more than 130 countries with its constitutional name. Among them are three permanent members of the Security Council, USA, Russia and China.

Activities have been organized by state institutions on the occasion of this activity. /ibna/
