U.S. President George W. Bush has sent letters to Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski and Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski respectively, promising to support Macedonia's NATO bid, news reaching here from Skopje reported on Tuesday.

In his handwritten letter to Macedonian President Crvenkovski, Bush reaffirmed that the United States is determined to help Macedonia to become a NATO member, a press release from Crvenkovski's office said.

"I'm glad that you attended my speech in Zagreb and the joint luncheon. We will help you achieve your aspirations for NATO membership," reads his another letter to Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski.

Gruevski expressed his gratitude for the support that the United States shows to Macedonia over its NATO accession efforts, reads a press release from the cabinet's office.

Macedonia's NATO membership was blocked by Greece over a 17-year-long name dispute between the two countries early this month at a NATO summit in Romanian capital of Bucharest.

Athens opposes its neighbor's constitutional name of "The Republic of Macedonia", arguing it implies a territorial claim over a Greek northern province also called Macedonia.
