Croatia set to sit at NATO table

The Croatian parliament has ratified the North Atlantic Treaty, fulfilling the last legal condition for NATO membership.

It is expected the Balkan country will attend the next NATO summit as a full member. In the 153-seat chamber, 119 voted for membership with one vote against; the others were absent. It has been a long road of reform for the country, which declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Albania is expected to join Croatia when they sit down as the 27th and 28th members of the alliance on the occasion of the bloc’s 60th anniversary in early April.
