FYROM: change the name to enter NATO

A recent research which took place in FYROM and was conducted under the auspices of the Institute of Political Research Skopje upon the Defence Ministry's request gave some very interesting statistics. 65,9% of the people asked answered that they believe that FYROM meets the criteria for NATO membership. 24,7%, on the other hand, do not believe that the country meets the criteria. Asked if they would accept to change the constitutional name in order to enter NATO 62,2% gave a negative answer. However 30,3% answered positively and 7.6% did not answer. 

Although here I state the facts from a local and simple poll, it is important to understand that the name issue is still on going, due to many political mistakes from the past, both from Greece and FYROM. It seems that this problem needs to be solved quickly and it should please both sides, or else the Balkan region will still be unstable, politically and economically, since progress is constantly halted on many fields.
