NATO Offer of Membership to Montenegro May Add to Russia Tension

NATO offered membership to Montenegro, extending its reach deeper into southeastern Europe and potentially adding to tensions with Russia.

The 28-nation U.S.-led military alliance agreed to start the entry process at a meeting of foreign ministers in Brussels on Wednesday, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said. Full membership for the former Yugoslav republic could take up to two years.
