Following a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Blinken on May 8, 2023, North Macedonia’s Prime Minister, Dimitar Kovachevski, and U.S. Special Envoy and Coordinator for the Global Engagement Center James P. Rubin signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining cooperation between the two NATO allies in the fight against the manipulation of information.

This MOU followed meetings held in Skopje on April 11, 2023, between the Government of North Macedonia and the U.S. Department of State.  During those meetings, both sides expressed concerns about efforts by Russia and others to deploy disinformation to undermine democracy and national security around the globe.  The new MOU will enable closer cooperation in the increasingly vital effort to combat misinformation and disinformation, protect democratic processes, and build resilient information ecosystems.
