Hello. I will be very grateful for some language help.
1)Is it possible to use "have" with the word "victory", for example "Last year our country had an important victory - it joined UNESCO"?
2)Is it possible to use "have a win" in the same context: "Last year our country had an important diplomatic win - we joined Unesco"?
Thank you very much for your help.

    1. No, but you could say, "... won an important victory ... "

    2. That's fine.

    My question is this: Over whom did the country "win" this "victory"? Was there a large faction or group of people who didn't want the country to join Unesco??
