15 Feb 2019 -  Video message by United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres on the Prespa agreement.
Dear friends,
I am very pleased to congratulate the leadership and people of Greece and North Macedonia on the historic agreement to resolve the long-standing dispute between them through negotiations under UN auspices.
This shows that even seemingly intractable issues can be resolved through dialogue and political will.
I sincerely hope that this achievement will inspire other leaders and stakeholders to take genuine steps to solve conflicts in Europe and beyond.
Thank you.
