U.S. SENATOR RICHARD LUGAR INTRODUCES NTO ENLARGEMENT BILL PENDING
U.S. Senator Richard Lugar proposes precipitation of Georgia`s NATO membership. The NATO Enlargement Bill he introduced to the president of the U.S. says:
"..the NATO Enhancement Act:
"Re-affirms the “Open Door” policy for all qualified nations to join NATO and rejects any notion of privileged spheres of influence.
"Declares for the first time in U.S. legislation that all four nations currently seeking accession to NATO (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Macedonia, and Montenegro) are to be considered NATO “aspirants.”
"Designates Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro as eligible to receive U.S. assistance geared towards NATO accession under the 1994 NATO Participation Act and reauthorizes assistance under the 1994 NATO Participation Act for Georgia and Macedonia.
"Urges President Obama to provide a clear roadmap for the accession of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Macedonia, and Montenegro to NATO at the Chicago Summit in May 2012.
"Encourages further efforts to develop Ukraine’s partnership and interoperability with NATO, a goal that has been re-affirmed by the Ukrainian Government. Requires a report to Congress on U.S. efforts underway to facilitate further NATO enlargement; on the readiness of Bosnia, Georgia, Macedonia, and Montenegro to join NATO; and on U.S. policies to uphold Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity."
