It's more like a problem of Greek relations, since the international community itself has no problem whatsoever with the country's name.Or in other words,it is more of an unilateral problem that is being forced and imposed to be international.

Most international problems involve mainly 2 or 3 countries (e.g. Cyprus, Ukraine, Kosovo). There are also others (usually neighbors or Great Powers) who have a smaller interest.

The countries you mentioned above and their problems can in no way be compared to the Macedonian name issue.
Cyprus has a problem between the Greeks and the Turks that live on that island,both of which claim rights to it.Ukraine is amid a civil war in a part of it's territory,and Kosovo is a wannabe country that half the world refuses to recognize because of the way it was created.
On the other hand,Macedonia nor the rest of the world for that matter has any problem with it's name,this issue was imposed by a neighboring country and it presents interference in a sovereign nation's internal affairs.If I want to be called Andgjfperrbedi,there's no one in the world that has the right to forbid it.

I didn’t mean the name dispute is as serious and dramatic as claiming a territory or being in war.

Your definition on what a bilateral problem is, is not very successful. Kosovo doesn’t see any problem on its’ independence either. Turkey didn’t see any problem on occupying the north part of Cyprus until recently (when oil was discovered in the South).

And where did I state it was a definition of what a bilateral problem is?

Again,you're comparing apples to oranges in the attempt to justify your country's interference in another country's internal affairs.
Macedonia didn't wage separatist war in a country where historically it has always been a part of, nor did it invade an island to grab a hold of it's natural resources.It's just beyond comparison.
How a country calls itself can only be determined by the will of it's people.Whether or not some other country (out of 200) has a problem with it for whatever reason is irrelevant.
