NATO Chief Sees July Decision on Launching FYROM Talks

June 25, 2018

BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO’s chief says he expect the leaders of the military alliance will decide at a summit next month to officially launch membership talks with FYROM.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Monday that “I expect and I hope that NATO leaders at the summit will decide to start accession talks.”

U.S. President Donald Trump and his NATO counterparts will meet in Brussels on July 11-12.

The news comes after Greece and FYROM agreed to end a decades-long dispute over the latter’s name. It will be renamed North Macedonia.

Greece had long insisted on the name change, arguing that its northern neighbor’s name implies claims on a northern Greek province called Macedonia, and on ancient Greek heritage.
