SCHEFFER: MACEDONIA HAS MORE TO DO



National.

NATO chief Jaap De Hoop Scheffer send a message to Macedonia that the country had still more obligations to fulfill before it is granted a membership in NATO symbolically describing the process as a marathon that has to be run all the way through.

"You have done a lot until now, but there is still work to do. When you're running a marathon, the first stage is always easier than the last. One should focus and avoid making mistakes before reaching the finish line. The same goes for the process", Scheffer said at today's press conference in Ohrid.

He enumerated the judicial reforms, equal representation, religious freedoms and normalizing the government-opposition dialogue as the main tasks, Makfax's correspondent reported.

"My message to you is that there is lot of legislation that needs to be implemented, and the decision will be made on the basis of the achieved results", NATO chief said.

Asked by a journalist how he feels in the EAPS Forum host-country and why he is dodging to spell out its constitutional name, Scheffer said that that issue is out of NATO's field of interest.

"At the moment, there is a formal situation relating the name of your country, but that issue is out of NATO's competence. I personally hope that the involved parties will work out a solution to the problem, however, I cannot change a formal situation", Scheffer
