Turkey supports Macedonia's NATO bid

Turkish parliament speaker reiterated his country's support for Macedonia's accession to NATO on Monday, saying Macedonia "deserved the membership."

"I believe that Macedonia will become a NATO member in the shortest possible time and we will continue to support Macedonia on this," Koksal Toptan told the General Assembly of the Macedonian Parliament.

Toptan said Macedonia had become a country which helped secure peace and stability in its region.

"Macedonia has already fulfilled the conditions for NATO membership and it deserves NATO membership. It is an injustice that NATO failed to extend membership invitation to Macedonia in the latest summit in Bucharest," Toptan said.
