The Hungarian Government welcomes the signing of the protocol on the NATO accession of the Republic of North Macedonia by the member states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) on 6 February 2019.

This step is another milestone in North Macedonia’s NATO accession process, in addition to which it contributes to reinforcing the security and stability of the country, the Western Balkan region and the whole North Atlantic region. The Hungarian Government trusts that the rapid ratification of the protocol will enable the Republic of North Macedonia to become a full member of NATO at the earliest opportunity.
