WASHINGTON

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday asked the Senate to approve North Macedonia as the 30th member of the NATO alliance.

"I transmit herewith, for the advice and consent of the Senate to its ratification, the Protocol to the North Atlantic Treaty on the Accession of the Republic of North Macedonia," Trump said in a statement.

The accession protocol was signed by all member states in Brussels on Feb. 6. The process has since moved to the capitals of all Allies, where the protocol will be ratified according to the national procedures of the member states.

"Full ratification of the Protocol will allow North Macedonia to become a Party to the North Atlantic Treaty and a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)," said Trump.

He praised North Macedonia as the U.S.'s "steadfast security partner".

"I ask that the Senate provide its advice and consent, and my Administration stands ready to brief and assist you in your deliberations," Trump concluded.
