Views were exchanged at the meeting between the two ministers on the overall bilateral relations between the two traditionally friendly countries, as well as opportunities to strengthen cooperation in all areas of mutual interest. The ratification of the NATO Accession Protocol of the Republic of North Macedonia by the Assembly of the Republic of Turkey merely confirmed the close cooperation and alliance between the two countries that are now formally partners within the NATO Alliance.

FM Dimitrov: We have been allies ever since our country’s independence, but the ratification formalized this alliance in a broader Euro-Atlantic context. North Macedonia’s NATO membership will take the country out of the regional pockets of insecurity and uncertainty and will ensure a safer and more predictable perspective.”
