Zakharova: What will NATO protect Macedonia from?

The Spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova referred at a press conference on Thursday the accession of Macedonia to NATO. “We do not understand what kind of threats will NATO protect Macedonia from? Having in consideration the situation in West Balkan, the only threat is the newly formed army of Kosovo, but thinking of it, will NATO engage in conflict with people they provided weapons to themselves? The entry in NATO has its price, and now Macedonia is forced to increase the state budget for the army, in order to aid military operations that are of no interest for the citizens of Macedonia,” Zakharova said.
