No MAPs This Week

James Appathurai, the NATO Spokesman, has told journalists at the NATO Summit that the sense of the Heads of State and Government during their dinner discussions is that Georgia and the Ukraine will not be offered Membership Action Plans (MAPs) this week. He underlined that their day will come, but that it will not be Wednesday in Bucharest.

Appathurai also told reporters that France will send an additional 700 or 800 troops to Afghanistan.

Also following the NATO leaders dinner, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos told reporters that Greece would not give on an invitation to Macedonia, and that Croatia and Albania would be the first NATO entrants in this new round of enlargement.
