Οbama Saves NATO Governments from Summit Shame
A call made by Barack Obama helped end the impasse. The Turkish government has given up its opposition and Danish Prime Minister Rasmussen will now become the new head of NATO. By doing so, Obama saved Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy from deep embarrassment at the summit. Delays in the agenda are part of the routine at NATO summits. When it comes to ending them, though, countries tend to be very punctual. By the last day, most are keen to return home and meetings are shortened and important issues sometimes delayed until the next summit. On Saturday, though, the decision to be made was too important -- and the summit was forced to go into overtime. Instead of holding a joint press conference at 1 p.m. as originally planned, Secretary General Japp de Hoop Scheffer was only able to appear before journalists after a two-and-a-half hour delay. It was easy to guess what he was going to say, too, given that has successor, Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, was already standing next to him.The reactions underscored what a tour de force NATO had just undergone. By Friday evening, when Turkey repeated its threat to veto any decision to appoint Rasmussen as the next secretary general, it became clear that a NATO summit being held to celebrate its 60th anniversary threatened to end in fiasco. But Turkey had been the only country that objected to Rasmussen's selection to head the trans-Atlantic military alliance. Detractors of the Dane, led by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, felt Rasmussen was unsuitable for the post because he had been unyielding in the dispute over the Muhammad caricatures and preferred to defend the right to free speech rather than apologize. In 2005, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten sparked outrage in the Muslim world after it published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad -- an act considered to be blasphemy by Muslims. Rasmussen's unbending stance made it easy for Erdogan to foment criticism against him in Turkey. The remaining 27 NATO members, especially Germany, France and the United States, all offered their clear backing for Rasmussen, but the summit remained a suspenseful one. The reason being that one of the many peculiar rules of the alliance is that the secretary general must be unanimously elected, meaning that Turkey actually did have the power to reject the choice.

STRASBOURG, April 4 (RIA Novosti) - NATO has confirmed in a statement after a NATO Council session its intention to admit Ukraine and Georgia when the countries fall in line with the alliance's standards. NATO has enlarged since 1999, admitting three ex-Soviet Baltic republics and four Communist-bloc states in Eastern Europe. The membership was more recently increased Wednesday, when Albania and Croatia formally joined the alliance. The expansion has strained relations between the West and Russia, which is concerned by the new military bases emerging along its borders. Last December, European NATO members led by Germany blocked U.S.-backed bids by Ukraine and Georgia to join programs leading to membership in the military alliance, but the ex-Soviet states were told they would eventually be allowed to join

"Επ ευκαιρία των 60 χρόνων λειτουργίας του ΝΑΤΟ, η μόνη ευχή που μπορεί αν κάνει κανείς είναι να διαλυθεί. Ο στόχος να διαλυθεί είναι επίκαιρος" , τόνισε ο γραμματέας της Κεντρικής Πολιτικής Επιτροπής του ΣΥΝ, Ν. Χουντής, αναφερόμενος στη Σύνοδο Κορυφής του ΝΑΤΟ στο Στρασβούργο και στη συνάντηση του πρωθυπουργού με τον Αμερικανό πρόεδρο."Η χώρα μας πρέπει να έχει φιλειρηνική πολιτική και να διεκδικεί τη λύση των προβλημάτων στις διεθνείς σχέσεις στη βάση του Καταστατικού Χάρτη του ΟΗΕ, του Διεθνούς Δικαίου και όχι από τη μεσολάβηση ή την επιδιαιτησία των ΗΠΑ", κατέληξε.
