The European Union will strengthen its support to its partners in the Balkans in order to advance them on the path of European integration. This was said by the head of European diplomacy Federica Mogherini and the commissioner for talks on the expansion Johannes Khan during a meeting with the leaders of the Western Balkans on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York.

“We give unanimous support to the prospect of EU enlargement on the Western Balkans, for this purpose we will strengthen support for our partners so that their success before the end of our mandate was irreversible,” Khan said in a statement.

At the meeting, in addition to European diplomats, the leaders of Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, as well as the self-proclaimed “Republic of Kosovo” were present.
