Pentagon: Dispute between Macedonia and Greece should remain outside NATO


The United States strongly supports the Prespa Agreement and hopes that bilateral disputes will remain outside of NATO, said Alton Buland, Principal Director for European and NATO Policy in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, in an interview for Voice of America in Macedonian, ahead of the commemoration of alliance’s 75th anniversary next week in Washington.

“We always encourage our allies and partners to adhere to agreements and to keep bilateral disputes and disagreements outside the NATO Alliance, to ensure cooperation and regional stability in your region,” Buland said.

He also said that the Western Balkan countries need to make the necessary reforms for EU accession, and that the lengthy integration process could lead Russia and other “malign actors” to exploit the people’s discontent.
