Cyprus is set to establish formal diplomatic relations with North Macedonia.
The news was revealed during the Economist conference in Lagonisi, in southwestern Attica.
Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides is expected to sign the agreement on the 29th of August at an EU Foreign Affairs Council summit in Finland.
North Macedonia Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has congratulated New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on his election victory.
"Congratulations for the election victory to the new PM of Greece," Zaev said in a tweet Monday. "I wish prosperity to Greece and to the Greek people. We hope to continue the cooperation between North Macedonia and Greece," he said.
North Macedonia changed the name of its army to abide by the provisions of the Prespes accord, the deal signed with Greece last year to end a decades-old dispute over the country's name, state-run news agency ANA-MPA reported Thursday.
The country added the adjective "north" to become the army of the Republic of North Macedonia.
