Congressman Peter Welch’s Remarks on Macedonia

Congressman Peter Welch (D-VT) gave the following remarks on February 13, 2008: “Macedonia has made incredible strides since its independence in 1991, achieving membership in the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the World Trade Organization, and to NATO’s Partnership for Peace and Membership Action Plan. Macedonia is a candidate for European Union membership and may soon be invited as a full member of NATO, hopefully as soon as April of this year. I look forward to the continued strengthening of the United States and especially Vermont’s partnership with the Republic of Macedonia.”  To read full text of remarks, click HERE.
