Greek jets mount NATO practice flights over Macedonia


Macedonia says fighter jets from neighboring Greece have carried out NATO-linked test overflights of its territory as part of the country’s process of joining the alliance.

The defense ministry said Tuesday’s two flights tested radar and communications coverage of Macedonia.

Macedonia has no fixed-wing military aircraft, and NATO has a program to protect the airspace of members that do not have sufficient means of their own.

Macedonia is set to become NATO’s 30th member by the end of this year, after NATO member Greece dropped its long-standing objections.
