NATO postpones invitation to Macedonia to join

BUCHAREST (Reuters) - NATO leaders were unable to agree on Wednesday to invite Macedonia to join the alliance after NATO member Greece said it had still not resolved a dispute over the former Yugoslav republic's name, a NATO diplomat said.

"The invitation will be postponed," said a European NATO diplomat who was briefed on the outcome of a summit dinner of the 26 leaders.
