(Xinhua/NATO)SKOPJE, Feb. 6 — The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) welcomed Macedonia and the member states signed the accession protocol, making our country permanently secured, Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev posted in the social media on Wednesday.The Permanent Representatives of 29 NATO member states in a meeting at the alliances headquarters in Brussels signed the protocol on Macedonias accession in the presence of Macedonian foreign minister.”This is historic day for our citizens. Today we sat side by side with our allies, at the same table, at the same alliance,” wrote Zaev.Zaev added that “our generations and children of our generations will live better, in the country and in a region is radiating with hope.”NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg commended Zaev and Greek PM Alexis Tsipras for their “courage” in signing a bilateral agreement last year that gave an end to the dispute over Macedonias name.”Today is a historic day. All NATO Allies have signed the accession protocol with Macedonia, which will bring more security and prosperity to the whole region. I look forward to the day when 30 flags will fly outside NATOs headquarters,” tweeted Stoltenberg.The signing of the accession protocol will be followed by a ratification process in all 29 parliaments of the NATO members, after which Macedonia will become a full NATO member with a right to vote.”I am confident that the ratification process will proceed smoothly and we will soon be able to welcome you as a full NATO member,” said Stoltenberg.Greece and Macedonia have been in dispute since 1991, when the former Yugoslav republic gained independence. Greece has objected to its neighbours constitutional name of the Republic of Macedonia, fearing that the name indicates territorial ambitions over the northern Greek province of Macedonia. Greeces objection has impeded Skopjes bids to join NATO and the European Union.Under the UN-brokered Prespa Agreement in June 2018, Macedonias constitutional name would become “the Republic of North Macedonia.”var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Du Mingming, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9544407;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Most Read1Mother in a vegetative state regains consciousness 95 days …2Here we go again with another scary story about China3Photos of a nurse comforting a little boy before surgery go…4Mays Brexit deal finally wins majority support in parliame…5Miss All Nations Pageant 2019 to be held in NanjingHot NewsChina, Panama to cultivate more envoys of friendship
