NEW YORK, USA (September 26,2008) - Bosnia has been invited to join a group of countries seeking membership in the NATO alliance.The Adriatic Charter, which consists of Albania, Croatia and Macedonia,extended invitations to the two southeastern European states: Bosnia and Montenegro, during a meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

"This decision was made in the firm belief that this expansion of the charter will further strengthen mutual cooperation and advance Euro-Atlantic integration," McCormack said.

Albania, Croatia and Macedonia under the guidance of the United States founded the Adriatic Charter in 2003 to help the countries join the NATO alliance.

Albania and Croatia are set to become NATO members next year, while Macedonia’s bid to join the military alliance faltered because of a Greek veto.
