Silence in Brussels for our expectations in Chicago

The ministerial meeting of NATO, which was prepared at the Alliance, no one spoke for receipt of Macedonia

Despite strong announced that more countries will open the question of admission of Macedonia 's NATO summit in Chicago, the ministerial meeting past two days, which was the final preparation of the summit, our country was not at issue. According to sources from the alliance at a meeting of foreign ministers and defense are discussed in much, but not the conclusion of Macedonia that our ministers for weeks looking to change and be more favorable than that linger from the summit in Bucharest . NATO spokeswoman, Oana Lungesku, yesterday announced that the candidate countries - box in which to find our country - you certainly have a conclusion in the final document in Chicago, which will confirm the open door of the Alliance to new members will indicate the progress made ​​by countries and they will be encouraged to continue with reforms. Will there be a separate paragraph of Macedonia, she could not confirm, adding that expectations are everything that was said and agreed so far to Macedonia, remain. If you know the final conclusion of NATO ministers in December last year, it appears that there will be a repeat of the political message from the meeting at which Macedonia will find the same status in terms of admission to the Alliance as Montenegro, Bosnia and Georgia. In NATO yesterday could not say whether Chicago should be re-view from Bucharest to Macedonia still thinks it can every Wednesday to join NATO if they resolve the dispute. They just told you what a policy is transferred to the Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski of the last meeting with the North Atlantic Council and Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen is still valid and will not change attitudes. As a reminder, the main message then was that Macedonia will join NATO as soon as you solve the name issue with Greece. In Macedonia, however, no one is considering whether a new conclusion of the summit in Chicago can invalidate conditional invitation of Bucharest however we do not like and is unworkable at present. In comparison to the previous two themselves in Lisbon and in Strasbourg, the invitation was repeated, and for the first time at the December ministerial meeting osvana another, but it was the reference point to Bucharest. It would create a danger NATO backdoor if it wants to reterira in the future in relation to the admission of Macedonia, as it already did with Georgia, where our country indirectly it helps. What keeps being strong policy towards Macedonia is avoiding the issue of admission re-opens the unresolved dispute over the name of the country after the Hague ruled that the veto was not a legitimate decision.(
