The final goal and common vision of the countries of the region is to see the entire Western Balkans join the EU, an informal summit held in Slovenia concluded.
Therefore the enlargement process has to continue following Croatia’s membership, read the conclusions adopted by regional leaders who gathered in Brdo pri Kranju on Thursday.
“Together, we want to show that outstanding issues can be resolved through political dialogue and honoring the international obligations that have been assumed. We are ready to change the view that the countries of the Western Balkans cannot solve bilateral problems among themselves.
“We want to say to our citizens that mutual understanding, cooperation and partnership can lead to compromise solutions and a safer and more prosperous life for each and every one of them,” the conclusions read.
