Polish President Lech Kaczyński attended the first two days of a three-day summit of Central European presidents in Ohrid, Macedonia, May 1-2. Kaczyński returned to Poland May 3 to officiate at Constitution Day celebrations. The presidents of Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro, the Czech Republic, Macedonia, Moldova, Germany, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, Hungary and Italy discussed closer integration of countries in the region with the EU and NATO, aspirations that Poland supports.

Albania and Croatia were invited to join NATO at the organization's recent summit in Bucharest, Romania, while Macedonia had expressed its willingness to join. Ukraine's unsuccessful bid to obtain a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) at the recent NATO summit was also discussed. Neither Ukraine nor Georgia were offered a MAP despite strong backing from the United States, Canada and several Central European countries. Germany and France had opposed the move because, according to analysts, they feared heightening tensions with Russia.
