NATO Summit Supports Territorial Integrity of Azerbaijan, Moldova and Georgia
Romania, Bucharest, 3 April /corr. Trend Y.Aliyev / On 3 April, the NATO summit in Bucharest highlighted support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan, Moldova and Georgia, the President of Romania, Trayan Basesku, said at a press-conference in Bucharest on 3 April.
Considering the possible precedent of Kosovo's independence for the 'frozen conflicts' in the post-Soviet territory, the North Atlantic Alliance decided to add additional item to the closing document of the summit, the President said.
In addition, Basesku said that Serbia did not appeal to NATO for membership, and Georgia and Ukraine did not demonstrate intensity with regards to the MAP. Moreover, Basesku said that the summit welcomed the steps of Ukraine and Georgia in the way of joining NATO.
Since the collapse of the USSR, three 'frozen conflicts' have been existing in the post-Soviet territory - Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in Azerbaijan, Georgian-Abkhazian conflict and Trasnistrian conflict in Moldova. The peaceful talks being held through mediation of the international organizations have not yielded any results so far.
