“There is a real opportunity for Macedonia to join NATO soon as there is big difference when talking about the country today compared to the past, US Ambassador Jess Baily said today at the debate “NATO and you” organized by the Ministry of Defense, the Euro-Atlantic Council of Macedonia (ATA-Macedonia ), NATO Liaison Office and the Croatian Embassy on the occasion of the Day of the Alliance – 4 April.

‘What does NATO membership for Macedonia and its citizens mean? This means that you will be allies, not partners, friends, neighbors with other member states. Today, marking the 69th anniversary of the signing of the Washington Treaty, the Alliance is an alliance that is based on respect for human rights and freedom, democracy and the rule of law,’ said Baily.

According to the US ambassador, the low level of rule of law is the country makes it first vulnerable to corruption, but also to internal and external enemies.” (Meta)
