NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and European Council President Donald Tusk welcomed on Wednesday news of a deal between Greece and FYROM on a name change for the small Balkan country.

"We welcome the agreement reached between Prime Ministers Tsipras and Zaev yesterday on a solution to the name dispute. We hope that this unique opportunity to relaunch the wider Western Balkan region's European and Euro-Atlantic integration will not be wasted. This agreement sets an example for others on how to consolidate peace and stability across the region," they said in a joint statement.
