They agreed that the process of European and Euro-Atlantic integration of the WB region is in the interest of this region and Europe in general, as well as that EU enlargement policy should be seen as European strategic policy.

“That means that the enlargement process must be alive. That is the interest of both the EU and the countries of our region”, said Markovic.
