DIANE Publishing, Mar 1, 2009 - 19 pages
In April `08, NATO invited Albania and Croatia to begin accession talks for NATO membership. The admission of new members requires ratification by 2/3 of the U.S. Senate. The Senate mandated that the Pres. provide a report that provides info. on the status of political, economic, defense, and related issues for the countries invited to join NATO, an assessment of the invited countries¿ likely impact on NATO¿s military effectiveness, and an analysis of the ability of each invited country to fulfill the full range of financial burdens of NATO membership. This report reviewed and assessed these reports and determined whether the reports met the Senate¿s requirements; and the info. in the reports was complete and correct.
