In Brussels on 1 December, Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Poposki participated in the Meeting of the North Atlantic Council (NAC) at the level of Foreign Ministers of the NATO member states and the countries
contributing to the Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan. Support was extended at the meeting for continuation of the NATO mission in Afghanistan in 2016, too, for the purpose of training, advising and supporting the Afghan security forces. Concurrently, emphasis was put on the need for ensuring financial sustainability of the security structures and supporting the institutional reforms and the long-term partnership process in accordance with the conclusions of the NATO summit in Lisbon in 2010.
It was confirmed at the meeting that Macedonia's contribution would remain at the same level next year, too.
The Republic of Macedonia has contributed more than 3,000 military personnel to the missions in Afghanistan since 2002.
On the sidelines of the meeting, Minister Poposki held bilateral meetings with several participants, including with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, Mevlut Cavusoglu.
