The move precedes a NATO summit set to begin in Bucharest,
Romania, on Wednesday night.
Hungarian FM Kinga Goncz and her Czech counterpart Karl
Schwarzenberg called for the joint admission as the best possible
move to improve security in the Western Balkans and beyond. All
three candidates have been consistent in meeting admission
requirements and are ready to meet the roles NATO requires of them,
Croatia and Albania are expected to receive invitations to join
the military alliance. Macedonia is hampered because Greece objects
to the country’s name.
