Dutch ambassador Simone Filipini said that Macedonia would not have to wait long to enter NATO and that this would probably happen already this year. “Everybody in NATO hopes that Macedonia will become a full member already this year,” said the ambassador at the lecture Contribution of the Republic of Macedonia to Global Safety and Stability, which was held at Military Academy in Skopje.
Filipini added that NATO was not only a military, but also a civil and political organisation and that the public must be made aware of this fact. She expressed hope that Macedonia would soon solve the name dispute with Greece and that bilateral relations between the two countries would become more stable.
