“NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said after the referendum, it remains up to the institutions to decide on the future of the country. Stoltenberg said in Belgrade that Macedonia’s membership in NATO depends on the implementation of the name agreement and that there will be no alternative, or as Plan B says.

‘When it comes to what FYROM should do, this is something that the government and Parliament should decide in Skopje. That’s why it belongs to the selected democratic institutions in the country, decide on the way forward and how to follow the referendum and the political implications after the referendum. What I can say is that if they decide to apply the agreement with Greece, then we are ready to accept the country as a 30th member and this can be done quickly because we have already started membership negotiations,’ Stoltenberg said.” (translated from Alsat)
