NATO Formally Invites Macedonia to Join Alliance

Wochit - Wednesday, 11 July 2018

According to Reuters, NATO leaders agreed on Wednesday to invite Macedonia to begin accession talks to join the Western alliance, following a landmark accord with Greece over the ex-Yugoslav republic’s name.

Macedonia will become NATO’s 30th member state, though its people must first back the deal with Greece in a referendum.

Under the accord, the official name of the country will become ‘Republic of North Macedonia’.
