EU enlargement in the Western Balkans is one of the priorities of the European Union (EU), and each country will be treated separately, according to its achievements, EU Commissioner for Enlargement Johannes Hahn stated in Vienna during a press conference.
After meeting with the leaders of the Western Balkans, Hahn said that the simultaneous entry into the EU of the Western Balkan countries is not possible, but that all six countries have a European perspective.
The presser was part of an official working breakfast for the prime ministers of the Western Balkans, organized by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.
Kurtz at a press conference said that, by the end of the EU Presidency, when it comes to the issue of the Western Balkan countries, the focus is on three things; the region’s path to the EU, the necessary regional co-operation and the resolution of bilateral conflicts in the region.
In terms of integration, by 2030 first on the list are Serbia and Montenegro, while by 2045 Albania and Macedonia could join as package, while Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina would wait another decade or so.
It gets better and better.
