Balkan countries have European perspective, says EC spokesperson

The European Union (EU) does not consider the Balkans as a problem. All countries have European perspective, but each of them faces specific problems, said Maja Kocijancic, the spokesperson for EU’s foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, in a commentary on the assessment that Serbia is one of the major problems in the region.

The evaluation for Serbia was given at a regional conference held in Croatia. The severest criticism towards Belgrade’s politics came from the leader of the ruling party in Montenegro, Milo Djukanovic, former Croatian president and prime minister Stepan Mesic and Montenegrin Prime Minister Igor Luksic.
