Abstract:

NATO will hold a summit in Bucharest, Romania, April 2-4, 2008. The allies will seek to clarify NATOs mission, with special attention to the stabilization of Afghanistan. They will also debate how to counter new threats, such as cyber attacks and energy cut-offs, as well as a possible missile defense system. In addition, they will decide whether to extend invitations for membership to any of three candidate states -- Albania, Croatia, and Macedonia -- and whether to put Georgia and Ukraine into the Membership Action Plan, a preliminary step to membership. See also CRS Report RL34415, Enlargement Issues at NATOs Bucharest Summit, coordinated by Paul Gallis. This report will be updated as events warrant.
