Jackson: Macedonia meets NATO membership criteria

Republic of Macedonia is fully qualified to receive an invitation to NATO membership at the upcoming summit in Bucharest, said Bruce Jackson, the founder and President of the Project on Transitional Democracies.

The remarks were made during the meeting with Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski.
The Project on Transitional Democracies is a multi-year endeavor aimed at accelerating the pace of reform in transitional democracies and advancing the date for the integration of these democracies into the Euro-Atlantic community.

Jackson updated Crvenkovski about his contacts in the US Senate as well as in NATO's institutions, which reaffirmed their support to Macedonia's NATO bid. They share the view that Macedonia meets the NATO membership criteria.
