“NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, speaking for France 24, announced the potential decision to start accession talks with Macedonia, provided that the agreement with Greece is successfully ratified.

‘The timeframe depends a bit on finalisation of the agreement in Skopje, but hopefully we can start the accession talks at the Summit, or at least make the decision to start them,’ said Stoltenberg, referring to the annual meeting of NATO heads of state, which takes place in Brussels from 11 to 12 July.” (EWB)
