President Obama and NATO Heads of State: Grant NATO Membership to Macedonia at Chicago Summit in May

Macedonia’s invitation to join NATO in Chicago, in May 2012, would only support NATO's ultimate mission: a Europe that is democratic, strong, and free. Macedonia has satisfied all the complex technical criteria for NATO membership, and yet, it remains outside the Alliance due to Greece's willful violation of international law. NATO leaders must take a stand for justice, and grant Macedonia the NATO membership it clearly deserves. The upcoming NATO Summit in Chicago provides an opportune time for NATO to accept Macedonia in the Alliance.

Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere.”
