The White House Administration has highly assessed the decision taken at the Bucharest summit regarding Ukraine and Georgia. During the meeting, member states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization managed to reach the "strategic decision" guaranteeing these two countries' membership in NATO in future. Assistant to the U.S. President for National Security Affairs Stephen John Hadley made the statement at a press conference in Bucharest.

"In his speeches over the last few days, the U.S. President repeatedly noted that the main aim in this direction was to make a clear statement that those two countries would become NATO members, and to outline transparent perspectives with regards to their membership. I should say that both these moments are taken into consideration in the approved statement," Hadley said.

The Membership Action Plan is the next step on this way, he said. "The adopted document makes it clear that these two countries, from the view of NATO, are topping the list for alliance membership. It's also clear that the decision was made by heads of the states and governments independently, without influence of any commentaries or statements from the countries that were not present at the summit," Hadley concluded.
