ATHENS, June 12 (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Tsipras said in a televised statement on Tuesday that Macedonia's name change to "Republic of North Mecedonia" would be reflected both domestically and abroad.

He said that the accord would allow a clear distinction between Greece's Macedonia province and the country.

"The name change will be implemented not only the country's international relations but also domestically," Tsipras said adding that Skopje would need to revise its constitution. (Reporting by Michele Kambas)
