Romania, Bucharest, 3 April /corr. Trend Y.Aliyev / Today the delegation of former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia will leave the NATO summit in Bucharest to protest against the decision to postpone its admission to the Alliance, a source at Press Secretariat of the summit reported to Trend correspondent.
The decision on Macedonia's admission to NATO was postponed on the insistence of Greece. Greece stated that it will use the right of veto on Macedonia's entrance to the Alliance if the issue regarding the title ' Macedonia' is not resolved. More than 50% of the historical regions in Macedonia belong to Greece, and Athena does not agree that the country with the capital in Skopje is called Macedonia without specification of its geographic situation.
Due to Greece's position, Macedonia was not invited to the key meeting of the Alliance. Therefore, Skopje made the decision to leave during second half of the summit on 3 April, the same source stated.
The NATO summit in Bucharest commenced on 2 April and will continue until 4 April. The summit is attended by all 26 State and Government Heads of member-countries, as well as State and Government Heads of the alliance partner-countries.
Albania and Croatia are expected to be admitted to NATO membership at the high summit.
