CANADA SUPPORTS MACEDONIA FOR NATO MEMBERSHIP
Canada openly supports Macedonia's membership in NATO and appreciates greatly its participation in the peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan.
Macedonian Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki said this after meeting today in Ottawa with the Speaker of the Canadian House of Senate, Noel Kinsella.
The stand of the Canadian authorities is that by joining NATO, Macedonia will contribute to additional strengthening of the Alliance's capacity in our region, says Milososki's statement published on the government's webpage.
On Monday afternoon, he is scheduled to meet with his Canadian counterpart Maxim Bernier, with the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Defense, Laurie Hawn, and with representatives of the Canadian-Macedonian inter-parliamentary group.
