1. MFA Department Head for NATO Policy Gulhan Ulutekin
confirmed on January 31 that the Council of Ministers decree
has been published in the official gazette declaring Turkey's
ratification of the protocols for Albania and Croatia's NATO
accession. According to Ulutekin, the only remaining step is
for the MFA to deposit the instruments of ratification with
the Department of State. She expected this step to be
completed in the first half of February.
