The Spanish Senate ratified Macedonia’s NATO Accession Protocol at Tuesday’s session. The vote took place by video-link due to the coronavirus situation in the country.
“The Spanish Senate unanimously ratified the Protocol. On behalf of the Government and the Macedonian citizens, let me extend my gratitude to Spain and the country’s foreign minister for putting the issue on the agenda in such difficult circumstances for Spain, Europe and the world,” Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov told a joint press conference with Spanish Ambassador Emilio Lorenzo Serra.
Although this was an extraordinary of the Spanish Senate, as Dimitrov described it, he thanked both Spain and the Senate and the foreign minister for putting the issue on the agenda in difficult circumstances for both Spain and the world.
The law on ratification of the Accession Protocol should now be signed by the Spanish king, which probably happen sometime next week.
