The Vice-PM and DM Radmila Sekerinska opened on Thursday an exhibition titled “70 years since Establishment of NATO and North Macedonia as its 30th Member”, which is part of the activities held in the country to observe the 70-year jubilee of the establishment of NATO. “On the day of NATO, it is good to remind ourselves where we were 12 months ago, when with serious work and a painful process of reforms and compromises we managed to reach a moment in which we observe this day as our holiday too. There are no more dilemmas that next year North Macedonia will seal the deal and become the 30th full-fledged member of NATO. NATO is an alliance, a world in which every single individual is important, free and protected,” Sekerinska said at the opening of the exhibition.
