Stoltenberg: No Plan B for Macedonia

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg reiterated Monday that the implementation of the name agreement with Greece is the only way to Macedonia’s NATO membership, and that there is no other way or plan B for the country’s admission to the military alliance.  “NATO is ready to accept Macedonia as the 30th member very soon after the implementation of the name agreement, but it is up to the citizens of Macedonia and its democratic institutions whether they will do it or not. We are ready. There is no plan B or an alternative to accession without the name agreement,” said Stoltenberg in a joint address to reporters with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic after the opening of emergency rescue exercises “Serbia 2018” in Belgrade.
