NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg arrived on an official visit to the Republic of Macedonia

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg arrived in Macedonia tonight on an official visit. This is the first visit of the NATO Secretary General after Macedonia received the invitation to join the Alliance, and the second this year. At the Skopje International Airport, the Secretary General was welcomed by Defence Minister Radmila Shekerinska.

“For the first time, in one single year, we have the NATO Secretary General visiting Macedonia as a country which is not yet a member of the NATO Alliance. The world really appreciates what is happening in the Republic of Macedonia and gives strong support to our two strategic goals – membership to the EU and the membership to NATO”, said Minister Shekerinska today in anticipation of the visit by the NATO most senior official.

In addition, we enclose videos and photographs from the reception of the NATO Secretary General, Stoltenberg, at the airport in Petrovec.
