The Russian Foreign Ministry has criticised NATO's attempts to incorporate Macedonia, stating it undermines stability and leads to confrontation in Europe, APA reports citing Sputnik.
"Russia's stance on NATO expansion is well-known. This process in itself is destructive, undermines confidence and stability on the European continent, and leads to increased confrontation. All new members join the alliance, including Northern Macedonia (it may join NATO in the coming months)", the head of the 4th European Department Yuri Pilipson stated.
The process of accession to the alliance is expected to be completed by the December NATO summit in London.
