NATO EVALUATIONS REGARDING REFORMS TO BE POSITIVE
NATO sees the military and security reforms as successful, while assessments would be positive. The obligation of meeting conditions in the political sector and implementing reforms in other sectors remain to be accomplished in the light of Bucharest Summit, NATO Military Committee Chairman Ray Henault stated after Friday's meetings with President Branko Crvenkovski and Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki.
Crvenkovski and Milososki informed the General that Macedonia was firmly resolved to meet remaining obligations, to reach required criteria and standards that would enable the country to acquire the NATO invitation in 2008.
Moreover, General Henault welcomed the participation of Macedonian troops in NATO-led peacekeeping missions and the cooperation among Macedonia, Albania and Croatia within the Adriatic Group.
"I salute the determination of Macedonian citizens for NATO accession, the country's general efforts for support of regional stability, as well as the constructive approach regarding the resolution of Kosovo's status", underlined NATO Military Committee Chairman, General Ray Henault.
