Turkey backs N Macedonia's NATO bid: Parliamentary Speaker
Şentop's remarks came during his visit to Bitola, southern city of North Macedonia.
Speaking to the reporters, Şentop said that each of the NATO member states should adopt a protocol on the entry of North Macedonia into NATO.
"This has legal processes. However, as Turkey's parliament speaker I've referred to our foreign affairs. I hope it will be discussed during Foreign Commission's meeting next week. It will then be approved by our General Assembly, possibly within a month," said Şentop.
Şentop added that Turkey and North Macedonia are two friendly and brotherly countries and Turkey is one of the first to recognize North Macedonia's independence.
