Senator McCain Says There Is Firm Support for Slovenia's Admission to NATO
Washington, 15 May - Prime Minister Janez Drnovsek, who is on a working visit to the U.S., has continued his meetings with U.S. senators, which focussed on Slovenia's bid to join NATO, while the senators showed interest in Drnovsek's views on the topical issues in international affairs and the U.S. relations with European countries. Like his earlier meeting with Republican senators Richard Lugar of Indiana and Gordon Smith of Oregon, Drnovsek's talks with Republicans John McCain of Arizona and George Voinovich of Ohio on Tuesday too showed the support of the senators for further NATO expansion and their confidence that the process would encompass Slovenia. McCain said that there was firm support in the Congress, administration and the member states in favour of NATO enlargement and Slovenia's admission.
