Macedonia has ratified the NATO membership protocol

Македонија го ратификуваше протоколот за членство во НАТО

Со постапка невообичаена за зовриената македонска политика, Собранието денеска едногласно го ратификуваше протоколот за членство во НАТО пред да се распушти во наредните денови. За ратификацијата гласаа 114 пратеници и со тоа заврши македонскиот пат за членството во Алијансата, а сега уште Шпанија треба да го ратификува протоколот и Македонија целосно да ја заврши целата процедура.

Пред пратениците и гостите прв се обрати претседателот на државата, Стево Пендаровски, кој нагласи дека со овој чекор државата е пред самиот крај на повеќедецениската определба на сите политички елити за членство во Северноатлатската алијанса. Пендаровски нагласи дека членството во НАТО немаше да се случи доколку не беа компромисните договори со Грција и Бугарија. Пендаровски уште нагласи дека државата сега има многу поголема одговорност за зачувување на мирот и стабилноста во Европа, а и пошироко. Врховниот командант најави дека Македонија ќе направи сѐ да го исполни барањето за издвојување на два отсто од БДП за Алијансата.

По Пендаровски зборуваше техничкиот премиер Оливер Спасовски, кој спомена дека без храбрите договори со Грција и Бугарија (за што особено го пофали Зоран Заев) не ќе можеше да стигнеме до овој момент.

Понатаму зборуваа координатори на пратенички групи, партиски претставници (меѓу кои и Али Ахмети), а последен се обрати претседателот на Собранието, Талат Џафери.

Откако 114 пратеници гласаа за ратификација во Собранието се обрати в.д. претседателот на Парламентарното собрание на НАТО, Атила Местерхази.

Меѓу повиканите гости беа лидерите на сите политички партии, претседателите на највисоките судски институции, членови на дипломатскиот кор, потоа високи претставници од парламентите на повеќе земји од регионот и висок претставник на НАТО.

Сенатот во Шпанија без ниту еден глас против го ратификуваше Протоколот за пристапување на Република Северна Македонија во НАТО, со што е остварена и последната ратификација на Протоколот.

Министерот за надворешни работи, Никола Димитров, на заедничката прес-конференција во Владата со шпанскиот амбасадор, Емилио Лоренцо Сера изрази благодарност до Шпанија што ова прашање беше ставено на дневен ред во околности кога Европа и Шпанија се соочува со пандемијата на коронавирус.

Spanish parliament approves North Macedonia’s NATO membership bid

COLOGNE, Germany – The Spanish Senate on Tuesday ratified the accession protocol for North Macedonia to join NATO, clearing another hurdle for the country to become the alliance’s 30th member.
In a session that had lawmakers vote remotely due to fears over the spread of the COVID-19 disease in the Madrid parliament, the move made Spain the last country to approve the former Yugoslavian country’s membership bid.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg hailed the news in Twitter message. “With that, all allies have welcomed our soon-to-be 30th member,” he wrote. “Congratulations, North Macedonia!”

The office of Spain's ambassador to the alliance said on Twitter that King Felipe had signed the bill “immediately” after its approval. “In the next 72 hours, Spain will deposit its instrument of ratification in the U.S. State Department,” officials wrote.

North Macedonia's NATO application has been pending for more than ten years due a dispute with southern neighbor Greece, which objected to the country's previous name – Macedonia – because a province named thusly exists there.

It took a name change to North Macedonia, formalized in 2018, to end the logjam. The change also enables the country to apply to join the European Union.

North Macedonia's quest for NATO membership began in 1995, when the country joined the alliance's Partnership for Peace program. The formal membership path was initiated at the 1999 Washington Summit together with other former Soviet bloc members, notably the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Retired Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, a former commander of U.S. Army forces in Europe, called attention to the difficult circumstances of the vote in Madrid. “Thanks to our Spanish ally, which has done this despite dealing with the challenges of the Corona Virus there,” he wrote on Twitter. “Perhaps NATO can lean into the virus with collective military medical capabilities as well.

27 Mar. 2020

North Macedonia joins NATO as 30th Ally

Today (27 March 2020), North Macedonia became NATO’s newest member, upon depositing its instrument of accession to the North Atlantic Treaty with the US State Department in Washington DC. NATO Allies signed North Macedonia’s Accession Protocol in February 2019, after which all 29 national parliaments voted to ratify the country’s membership.

Speaking in Brussels on Friday NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, “North Macedonia is now part of the NATO family, a family of thirty nations and almost one billion people. A family based on the certainty that, no matter what challenges we face, we are all stronger and safer together.“ North Macedonia is a long-standing contributor to our Euro-Atlantic security, including by participating in NATO-led missions in Afghanistan and in Kosovo.

A flag-raising ceremony for North Macedonia will take place at NATO Headquarters on 30 March 2020, in the presence of the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the Chairman of the NATO Military Committee Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach, and the Chargé d’Affaires of the Delegation of North Macedonia to NATO Mr. Zoran Todorov. The flag of North Macedonia will be simultaneously raised at the Allied Command Operations in Mons (Belgium) and at the Allied Command Transformation in Norfolk (US).

They should look to Italy to see how much brotherly love there is within the EU. First sign of trouble and its every country for itself.

Seeing all the congratulating been done on twitter is so disgusting, Macedonians were forced to give up their identity to join an organization they didn't even want to be in. Now how many Macedonian's will have to die in America's countless wars for oil?

I'm appalled with Umd and their subsidiary for younger Macedonians GenM; they both thank and congratulate Macedonia on their entrance into Nato. They know what happened in the referendum, but I guess they think by saying Macedonia instead of N.Macedonia it will make everything okay.

I don't get it, just looking through Meto Koloski's twitter feed and its like this guy flip flops on everything, he thanks Spain for passing thru Macedonia but then says that he disagrees with them for using the abbreviation NMK because its not registered. Give me a break what did u think would happen, don't thank Spain and just correct them it's like he's trying to have one foot in the door and the other in another.

I've always thought of joining their subsidiary GenM to meet Macedonians my age as my university doesn't have a Macedonian student association. But it's stuff like this that turns me off, like I don't understand these people and why they act like this.

NATO opens probe on France-Turkey naval incident in Mediterranean

URL:
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/...170558971.html

Jens Stoltenberg says alliance authorities are investigating the incident 'to bring full clarity into what happened'.

18 Jun 2020

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg has said the military alliance will investigate French accusations that Turkey's navy failed to respond to an allied call for inspection this month in the Mediterranean.

Florence Parly, France's armed forces minister, brought up the incident on Thursday during a meeting of NATO defence chiefs at a time when the two allies have traded barbs over the crisis in Libya, accusing each other of supporting opposing sides in the country's war.

Parly said that on June 10 Turkish warships flashed their radar lights three times at the French warship Courbet in the eastern Mediterranean. She said the Courbet was on a NATO mission to check whether a Turkish vessel, the Cirkin, was smuggling arms to Libya after it turned off its transponder, failed to identify itself and did not give its final destination.

She added that Turkish sailors had also put on bullet-proof vests and stood behind their light weapons during the incident.

"There cannot be any complacency with regard to such behaviour. This particularly serious incident must be dealt with and our allies share our concerns because eight European allies gave me clear support today in NATO," Parly told French lawmakers after the ministerial meeting.

Turkish military officials on Thursday rejected the French accusations as baseless, according to state-run Anadolu news agency.

"The Turkish armed forces has the experience to tell the difference between hazardous moves, harassment, friendly activities, cooperation, solidarity, and coordination," a senior Turkish official, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media, was quoted as saying.

The official said France's claim was not backed up by any concrete evidence, and said the French ship was making fast and dangerous manoeuvres that breached NATO principles and navy security rules.

Turkey informed NATO civilian and military officials about the incident, he added.

Stoltenberg told a news conference on Thursday that the incident was addressed at the meeting by several alliance states.

"My message is that we have made sure that NATO military authorities are investigating the incident to bring full clarity into what happened," the NATO secretary-general told reporters.
