support to their European perspective. They agreed to visit the candidate countries together to signal that they are behind them in their efforts to meet the membership criteria.
Thus, the Western Balkans are becoming not only a priority of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, but also of the other member states of the region.

Our help should also be expressed in practical ways – providing experts, assisting meetings in Brussels, working on connecting the infrastructure, “said Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva.
