Greece's northern neighbor inches toward NATO, EU memberships after the country's government agreed to change its name. The land-locked country of North Macedonia has been working to gain membership in NATO and the European Union. But until now, those efforts were being blocked by Greece, which is a member of both alliances. That is a big part of the reason why North Macedonia formally changed its name in February from the "Republic of Macedonia," a moniker it held since gaining independence in 1991 from the former Yugoslavia and one that Greece said threatened its cultural identity. The move may now help North Macedonia's goal of further aligning itself with the West. Special Correspondent Christopher Livesay reports.
