“Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the EU, is set to visit Macedonia on September 7, three weeks prior to scheduled name-change referendum.

Kurz is to visit Macedonia at the invitation of Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, who has also invited several other European leaders ahead of holding the referendum scheduled for September 30.

During Zaev’s last visit to Vienna at the end of June, Kurz appealed to citizens of Macedonia to vote in the referendum on the new name ‘North Macedonia.'”
