“The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) sent a letter to US President Donald Trump prior to his scheduled meeting with the Greek Prime Minister at the White House, urging him to push Alexis Tsipras to unlock Macedonia’s well-deserved NATO membership.

‘Since the establishment of full diplomatic relations in 1995, the United States has readily supported the Republic of Macedonia’s aspirations for full integration into Euro-Atlantic institutions. In turn the Republic of Macedonia has been a staunch ally and supporter of the United States in many of its international ventures, including in Afghanistan. However, all of this has also taken place in the context of the Republic of Macedonia’s consistent mistreatment from its southern neighbor, the Hellenic Republic,’ the letter reads.” (Republika, photo: UMD President Metodija Koloski, members of UMD with Co-Chair of the Macedonian Caucus Congressman Brendan Boyle )
