"We agreed to join forces for the promotion of Euro-Atlantic values, capacity building and acceleration of reforms, as well as full support for democracy, human rights and the rule of law. In the coming period, we will work on many joint projects, trainings and initiatives through several programs for different groups of citizens. Starting from the end of March 2023, joint organization of several events on the occasion of NATO membership and NATO Day is planned," said Ismet Ramadani, President of the Euro-Atlantic Council during the signing of the Memorandum.
