This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: Change default language of the website
Solution: You can change default language on WPML > Languages > Change Default Language. However It will change the URLS of the pages/posts.
I recommend that you make a backup before changing the default language. So you can reverse the change if something goes wrong.
