The position of NATO concerning the accession of fYROM remains unchanged: the condition for the start of accession negotiations with Skopje is a mutually acceptable solution for the name issue.

More precisely, the Secretary General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, speaking to the radio station Radio Free Europe, declared: “Concerning Skopje, we have already decided in 2008 that we are ready to commence accession negotiations as soon [as the two sides, Greece and fYROM] reach a mutually acceptable solution concerning the name. Unfortunately there has been no progress in that direction. However, the decision that we took four years ago still stands”.
