Today, July 30th, Macedonian lawmakers announced that they have set September 30th as the date for a referendum on the country's Nato and EU membership bids and on its agreement with Greece on the country's name, Reuters has reported.

The question for the referendum will be: "Are you in favour of NATO and EU membership, and accepting the name agreement between the republic of Macedonia and Greece?" This was decided by 68 deputies in the 120-seat parliament, who voted in its favour.
