Germany is Not Interested in NATO Enlargement
Germany will not support the accession of Montenegro to NATO at the summit in Wales, announced the government in Berlin.
The government of Chancellor Angela Merkel said, as stated, that Germany is not interested in NATO expansion at this point, as it was officially confirmed by the Government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
As Radio Free Europe writes, Seibert said the western military alliance's enlargement was "not a subject" to be discussed at this moment.
"The federal government does not see the need at this stage for further expansion of NATO to the east. That is not on the list of necessities for us, although Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Macedonia seek to become members,” said Seibert.
At the meeting in Brussels, NATO Secretary-General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Montenegrin Prime Minister, Milo Djukanovic both agreed that the issue of enlargement should be on the agenda at the upcoming Summit in Wales.
