54 members of Congress urge Obama to invite Macedonia into NATO

"If Macedonia can protect the tent of NATO, Macedonia should be able to sleep in the tent of NATO"

From the Hill: Rep. Candice Miller (R-Mich.) and a bipartisan group of 53 other House members called on President Obama late last week to ensure that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) invites Macedonia to the group during a planned May summit meeting in Chicago.

“We strongly urge your Administration to make sure that NATO finally offers the Republic of Macedonia its well-deserved formal invitation to join the Alliance during the Chicago Summit,” they wrote. “It is our strong belief that an invitation to Macedonia to join the Alliance will benefit U.S. national security interests and NATO’s global mission.”
