The North Atlantic Alliance's expansion could be hindered if the dispute between Greece and Macedonia is not resolved, Romanian Foreign Minister Adrian Cioroianu said on Thursday.
"I must say that after all these negotiation rounds, the main problem that could lead to the hindrance of the NATO's enlargement by three candidates (Albania, Croatia and Macedonia) is still the dispute between Macedonia and Greece," said Cioroianu at a press conference here.
He voiced hope that the two countries will use the twelve days left till the summit due in Bucharest "showing the required flexibility to overcome this deadlock."
The Romanian foreign minister admits that the most sensitive topics are related to the political and the enlargement agenda. Headded that in Brussels there have already been held four negotiation rounds on the issues to be approached during the NATO Summit in Bucharest.
