Barack Obama did not invite Macedonia to Prague

U.S. President Barack Obama did not invite Macedonia together with 11 more European countries that significantly contribute to NATO missions to attend the official dinner within the U.S.–Russian summit in Prague, Macedonian Vreme daily writes.

The newspaper comments that Macedonia is fourth in terms of the number of troops in Afghanistan per capita, but that is not enough for it to receive an invitation from the U.S. administration, which is the host of the event. Only NATO members from Central and Eastern Europe were invited, the newspaper says.

The heads of state or government of the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Croatia were invited to Prague.
