Central Europe heads of state begins in Macedonia

Central European heads of state will gather on Friday in the Macedonian town of Ohrid for a two-day summit on EU enlargement process and its impact on national economies.

Macedonian president Branko Crvenkovski will be the host of the event which is expected to gather delegations from 19 countries and 17 presidents.

Macedonia was not invited to join NATO during the April summit in Bucharest over its name dispute with neighbouring Greece.

Athens has blocked Macedonia's entry into NATO.

Macedonia was bitterly disappointed over not being invited to join NATO which caused the parliament to dissolve and early parliamentary elections to be called for June 1.

President Crvenkovski views the summit as an opportunity to once again affirm Macedonia's interest in Euro Atlantic integrations.

Gul to meet leaders

Turkish President Abdullah Gul is attending the 15th Summit of Presidents of Central European States.

Gul is the special guest of the summit which will take place in Ohrid, Macedonia until May 3rd.

He is also scheduled to hold talks with several presidents at the summit.
