PERRY DISCOURAGES EXPECTATIONS ON NATO MEMBERSHIP.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 1 Issue: 138
US Defense Secretary William Perry yesterday told the press in Tallinn that he was advising Baltic leaders that NATO would not "prioritize" the candidacy of any country for membership in the alliance. " Admission to NATO membership for any country is many years away, and to me it is the wrong emphasis for Estonia or the other Central and East European countries to be focusing on NATO membership at this time. It is a long and complicated process. I can’t forecast what the outcome of this process will be." (1)
