Statement by the NATO Secretary General on the situation in Kumanovo, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia¹
I am following the developments in Kumanovo with great concern. I express my sympathy to the families of those who were killed or injured.
It is important that all political and community leaders work together to restore calm and conduct a transparent investigation to establish what happened.
I urge everyone to exercise restraint and avoid any further escalation, in the interest of the country and the whole region.
- Turkey recognises the Republic of Macedonia with its constitutional name.
