Italian Senate ratifies North Macedonia’s NATO Accession Protocol

Italy ratified North Macedonia’s NATO Accession Protocol on Wednesday.

The Italian lower house Chamber of Deputies approved the protocol, but its ratification in the Senate was postponed due to the political crisis, which was resolved by the formation of a new Italian government.

Defense Minister Radmila Shekerinska expressed her gratitude for the ratification on her official Facebook profile.

“Thanks Italy! Another ratification of the NATO accession protocol“,Shekerinska posted on Facebook.

So far, 23 out of 29 member states have ratified North Macedonia’s NATO accession protocol.
