"The Republic of North Macedonia is officially the new, 30th NATO member," the government in Skopje said in a statement. "We have fulfilled the dream of generations."
From NATO headquarters, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg declared: "North Macedonia is now part of the NATO family.
It was a family of 30 nations and almost 1 billion people "based on the certainty that, no matter what challenges we face, we are all stronger and safer together, Stoltenberg added.
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said a long journey had finally come to an end.
"North Macedona's NATO accession increases security and stability across the Western Balkans and is a sign of NATO's open-door policy, which contributes towards freedom, democracy and human rights," he said.

When does the Duchy of Grand Fenwick get admitted?!
Yay more money we get to spend on some hole in the ground country to protect
You realize Grand Fenwick has a space program (powered by radioactive wine) and the most powerful military in Europe (40 longbow men and a bomb powerful enough to blow up a continent)?
Still waiting on Elbonia and Lower Slobovia.
Let’s bring it back to 29 by having the U.S. withdraw.
Lower Slobovia is Under occupation by Belarus.
“Hail, hail, Fredonia!”

The Greek part of Macedonia was the original kingdom of Macedonia in classical times but Philip of Macedon greatly enlarged the kingdom, so "North Macedonia" was part of what was known as Macedonia for upwards of 2000 years. Certainly longer than most members of the UN have been known by their present-day names.
