Members of Macedonia's Parliament adopted on Wednesday a declaration reaffirming the realisation of Macedonia's strategic goal for NATO membership.

The declaration, which has been proposed by VMRO-DPMNE and DUI, was endorsed by all MP groups, except by DPA.

The declaration, amongst other things, says that country's integration to NATO should be the main political determination, intention, objective and merit of all political parties, social stakeholders and citizens who affect the dynamics and quality of the process with their actions and share an obligation to contribute. It urges NATO's 'open doors' principle to be respected. The text underlines that the country has met all of the criteria and conditions for NATO membership. Macedonia remains committed to continuous reforms and support of peacekeeping missions aimed at securing global peace and democracy.

It calls on the legitimacy and legality of the United Nations and bodies formed by the world organisation to be respected. It also advocates international law and its norms to be respected and asks for the judgement of the International Court of Justice to be taken into consideration as well as its recommendations offering an objective account of the situations that affect the Euro-Atlantic integration of Macedonia and enabling a breakthrough to be made in the process and in establishing cooperation with neighbouring countries.

The document emphasises that fostering of neighbourly ties is of vital importance in enabling development of the region.

"Our goal is to constantly improve our mutual collaboration with the neighbours in the interest of country's citizens. With the declaration, we are reaffirming our commitment to and interest in finding a solution to the name issue under UN auspices - a solution that will not harm anybody," reads the text.

It highlights the importance NATO to focus its enlargement on the region. Support is also sought from member countries at the upcoming NATO summit in order a membership invitation to be extended to Macedonia and accession talks to be launched with the EU.
