( Reuters ) - NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said on Thursday that no nation could veto Georgia's bid to become a member of the NATO military alliance.

"No other nation, big or small, has a veto on the course Georgia and NATO want to follow together," he told reporters.

"That is the process that has to be decided finally by all the 26 NATO allies and no nation, I repeat big or small, will be able to influence that process."
