British House of Lords: FYROM Should Join NATO Regardless of Name Solution

“The Government should support measures to help Macedonia join NATO, with or without a solution to the name issue,” a Great Britain’s House of Lords report says.

The report titled “UK and the Future of Western Balkans” is drafted by the foreign affairs committee of the House of Lords. It is dated from December 2017 and is to be published on January 10, 2018.

The report says that the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia should be aided to join NATO for peace and stability in the region. The accession should take place regardless of whether the name issue is resolved or not.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said during his visit to Skopje that without an agreement between Athens and Skopje, FYROM will not join the North Atlantic Alliance. However, Great Britain, a powerful member of NATO and one of five permanent members of the Security Council of the UN, might call for FYROM to join the Alliance with or without a name agreement.
