Polish President criticizes Germany for rebuffing Ukraine, Georgia on NATO
NATO accepted FRG in 1955 despite all the risks
President of Poland Lech Kaczynski has criticized Germany for rejecting to support Ukraine and Georgia bids to join NATO MAP.
According to Deutsche Welle, referring to Frankfurter Allgemeine, in his address to the other 25 Alliance member countries, the Polish leader reproached Germany that it forgot the history. According to L.Kaczynski, in 1955, NATO accepted FRG, despite its borders were recognized by not all European countries, and the world was jeopardized with an eventual military conflict due to the situation in the divided Berlin. That time, L.Kaczynski believes, the Alliance, despite all the risks, made a “courageous decision”. “The memory about this undermines the arguments of those speaking against allowing Ukraine and Georgia to join the NATO MAP”, the Polish President stressed.
