Stavridis: Macedonia is the next country that will join NATO

Macedonia is the next country that should be joining NATO, stated the former NATO commander James Stavridis for Voice of America.


“I hope that Greece will be able to work with Macedonia in finding a solution for the name dispute which will open the door for Macedonia to join NATO. I think Macedonia is the next country that will join the Alliance,” said general Stavridis, saying also that the next steps would be towards unification and strengthening of the Balkans region.

He reminded that even VP Mike Pence, who at the start of the month had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, has stressed the US support for Macedonia’s membership in NATO.

“Pence stressed that the USA will support Macedonia’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations” and has encouraged Zaev to give priority to the reforms that will speed up the process” announced the White House after the telephone conversation.
