“The leaders of 29 NATO Allies and many partner nations will meet in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday (11 and 12 July 2018) for a Summit at the Alliance’s new headquarters. Together, they will take decisions to strengthen NATO’s deterrence and defence, step up in the fight against terrorism, and achieve fairer burden-sharing.

Allies are also set to invite Skopje to start accession talks. Once the historic agreement on the name issue is finalised and implemented, NATO will be able to invite the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia[1] to become NATO’s 30th member under its new name: the Republic of North Macedonia.” (NATO)
