The government of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) will submit the draft legislation revising the country's constitution by the end of the week, Prime Minister Zorav Zaev said on Monday, according to MIA news agency.
The changes are part of a deal struck with Athens last June to change the country's name to North Macedonia, ending a 27-year-old name dispute.
An army patrol of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia reportedly fired warning shots in the air at the country's border with Greece on Wednesday to stop a group of migrants from crossing it, MIA news agency reported.
According to a press release by FYROM's army, cited by MIA, the soldiers "vocally warned the group on several occassions, but they ignmored the calls."
According to local media, one migrant was arrested and turned over to the police, while others returned to the territory of Greece.
The Macedonian Army said in a press release that the incident happened when one of its patrols detected a group of migrants illegally crossing the border near the regional road Gevgelija-Moin.
Macedonian citizens will vote on whether to change the name of their country to "North Macedonia" - i.e., support an agreement reached with Greece after a multi-decade dispute.
According to the latest polls, most of those who said they would vote will circle "yes" - but it remains uncertain whether the turnout will reach the necessary minimum of 50 percent of voters.
