(USATODAY) — ATHENS, Greece — The prime minister of Greece said Tuesday his country had reached an agreement with the country’s northern neighbor to end a 27-year dispute over Macedonia’s name that has kept the former Yugoslav republic out of NATO.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in remarks broadcast by state television that a deal had been reached that would give Macedonia a different name that would be used both domestically and internationally.

Tsipras did not, however, immediately reveal what that name will be.
