    Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Introduction - 2004
    https://immigration-usa.com/wfb2004/macedonia_the_former_yugoslav_republic_of/macedonia_the_former_yugoslav_republic_of_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2004 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      International recognition of The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia's (F.Y.R.O.M.) independence from Yugoslavia in 1991 was delayed by Greece's objection to the new state's use of what it considered a Hellenic name and symbols. Greece finally lifted its trade blockade in 1995, and the two countries agreed to normalize relations, despite continued disagreement over F.Y.R.O.M.'s use of "Macedonia." F.Y.R.O.M.'s large Albanian minority, an ethnic Albanian armed insurgency in F.Y.R.O.M. in 2001, and the status of neighboring Kosovo continue to be sources of ethnic tension.
