A NATO official on Wednesday said that Macedonia could become a full member of NATO by the spring of 2020, although the alliance will seek to accelerate the process of accession as far as possible.

“We expect that it will take 12 months for the NATO countries to ratify the accession protocol of Macedonia to become a member by next spring,” the media quoted the official as saying.

He expected to receive an official letter from Skopje saying that the process of changing the name of Macedonia to Northern Macedonia Is over.

The NATO member states signed the accession protocol with Macedonia at the NATO headquarters in Brussels, and the protocol will be submitted to the ratification of the NATO countries and then ratified by Macedonia in turn.
