Macedonia: U.S. backs Macedonia's NATO bid

David Price, chairman of U.S. House of Representatives Democracy Assistance Commission, has said that Macedonia had made progress on its way to join NATO, reiterating that the United States would help it achieve its aspirations.

Price, who heads a visiting U.S. Congress delegation to Macedonia, said that Europe would not have true stability and universal democracy until Balkan conflicts are resolved.

He hoped that the name dispute between Macedonia and Greece will not stand in the way of its NATO accession, and that a friendly solution will be found out to the issue.
