President Meta congratulates President Pendarovski about the Spanish Senate passing of the North Macedonia Republic NATO’s Accession Protocol

Honorable Mr. President,

I was pleased to hear the news that this morning the Spanish Senate voted the approval of the Protocol of Accession of the Republic of North Macedonia to NATO, which was immediately signed by King Felipe, paving the way for your country’s membership to NATO.

This is good news for all of us because the NATO membership of North Macedonia serves to enhance the security, stability and peace not only in our region.

Albania has been one of the first countries to adopt this Protocol and has always been a firm supporter of your journey to NATO. This is a crowning of your indisputable achievements towards the standards required by the Alliance, as well as of our joint efforts, even within the framework of the Adriatic Charter, where our countries have mutually supported and assisted one another.

I express the conviction that Albania and North Macedonia, as two neighboring countries, NATO allies, and with common European and Euro-Atlantic visions, will further strengthen the co-operation and contribution to further enhancing the collective security.

Wishing you once again for this remarkable event, please accept, Your Excellency, the expression of my highest consideration!

Ilir Meta
