Late last night, the Assembly of the Republic of North Macedonia with 62 votes in favor elected the new government headed by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. Defense Minister Radmila Shekerinska has begun her second term in office.
- I embark on my second term as Minister of Defence with great honor and commitment. In 2017, I found a closed institution, low budget, torn uniforms, low salaries, a completely neglected Army.
Today the picture is different. We are already a member of NATO, with twice the budget, increased salaries, first in transparency, with new uniforms and equipment. We do not stop here! We will use NATO membership for the benefit of the country and the defense. We will show that we can do even better! – said Minister of Defense Radmila Shekerinska immediately after being appointed to the position.
