Macedonia

Australia recognises the Republic of Macedonia as "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia." Australia says its position is in accordance with UN terminology. However, 140 UN members, including four of five permanent UN Security Council members (the UK, USA, Russia and China), recognise the Republic of Macedonia by its historical and constitutional name. In the spirit of democracy, fundamental freedoms, respect for human rights and dignity and the rule of law; Australia should also recognise the Republic of Macedonia by its historical and constitutional name.

We call upon the House of Representatives to follow the example of the UK, USA, Russia, China, Canada and 135 other countries and recognise the Republic of Macedonia by its historical and constitutional name.
