Sekerinska Attends NATO Defence Ministers Video-meeting

Defence Minister Radmila Sekerinska attended the meeting of defence ministers of the NATO member-states, for the first time after Macedonia’s accession in the Alliance as its 30th member-state. The meeting was held via video-link due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which was also one of the main points of discussion among the defence ministers. “The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge like we have never faced before, causing great damage to our society, costing us people’s lives, also joined by great economic damage. However, this crisis also showed us that our member-states are united and cooperate with each other to tackle this threat by using and applying the mechanisms available from the Alliance,” said NATO Sec Gen Jens Stoltenberg.
