FYROM’s Defence minister, Radmila Sekerinska said that after so many years, the country deserves to become a NATO member. Sekerinska made these comments from Washington, where she is staying on an official visit.
She said that the invitation to join NATO would contribute not only for the security of FYROM, but for the security of the entire region.
In Washington, Sekerinska met the US Secretary of Defence, James Mattis and this marks the first official bilateral meeting with a US Defense Secretary after so many years. /ibna/
