On Wednesday, Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani met with NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy Javier Colomina, who’s also the Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia.
The meeting focused on the security situation in the Western Balkans. The need for synchronised action by NATO and the EU in the region aiming at speeding up Euro-Atlantic integration processes was jointly concluded.
According to Osmani and Colomina, such a step is key to strengthening regional stability, while it will also prevent the action of third countries in the region.
In that context, Osmani highlighted the strong commitment of North Macedonia to NATO’s open-door policy. Osmani highlighted also the role of North Macedonia as current holder of the US-Adriatic Charter (A5) presidency, in direction of kindling Euro-Atlantic integrations of countries from the region and preserving regional security.
Colomina stated that North Macedonia was a respected member that contributed to regional security, as well as a committed ally that respected the goals and shared common values.
