Bush Endorses Ukraine's NATO Prospects in Kiev
"The membership of Ukraine and Georgia is in NATO's interest", Bush said at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Yushchenko.
He added that Ukraine was the only country that had participated in all of NATO's missions without being a member of the Alliance.
Bush stated explicitly the United States supported strongly Ukraine's admission to NATO. When asked if he would be able to influence Germany and France's potential opposition to this move, the American President said the respective arrangements had already been made.
"Russia must not block our membership in NATO", the Ukrainian President Yushchenko stated.
The question about Ukraine's accession to the North Atlantic Alliance is to be discussed at the NATO Summit in Bucharest that starts on Wednesday.

you are either a dumb Bulgarian, or the Bulgarian you get your Balkan education from, is a dumb Bulgarian.
No, the whole world isn't consumed with our little problems and worrying about Bulgaria's "image" - you can tell that to your GF that feeds you all that crap....
Not even of the "image" of Bulgarian men, as what wildthing obviously thinks about...
The fact that we do have a bunch of damaged people with such provincial outlook, comes with the territory.
The ease with which they infect with stupidity the foreigners around them, is what blows my mind!
Ukraine and Georgia are former USSR and have nothing to do with Makedonia.
That's the whole controversy - the Russians are up in-arms about that!
They couldn't care less about Makedonia, not to mention that even then, there was ABSOLUTELY no context to discuss Bulgarian corruption at all, stupid ass....
Try reading the story instead of just the headline.
The quote from Dubya: ""The membership of Ukraine and Georgia is in NATO's interest", Bush said at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Yushchenko."
Why mention Georgia and not Macedonia, the only other NATO candidate to be discussed in Bucharest? Simply, Dubya is telling us who the US wants in NATO. Poor Macedonia doesn't figure, because of Greek pressure.
this here is a perfect illustration of the provincial narcissism, I was allotting to earlier:
The likes of furio and this here ass CJB, would use a story about the procreative habits of Indian elephants, to fine a reason and connection to slam BG....
You are the same, so don't be surprise that I don't find you funny....
No mention of Macedonia's bid to join NATO. Tough luck! The Greeks have a lot of influence in the US, and vice versa.
That's one of the main differences politically between Greece and Bulgaria: Greece was a member of NATO during the Cold War, not Warsaw Pact like BG. So their nationalism, corruption, "Balkan mentality" is tolerated by US and EU: people are used to it and they have enough reliable information to "trust" the Greeks. BG on the other hand, with ex-KGB politicians, nouveaux riche mafia links to Russian oligarchs, etc. is more difficult for US and EU to keep under control. So they don't "trust" the Bulgarians in the same way. Nothing to with Bulgarians in general, just the political history and its legacy of ties and connections. These things are still important.
