Pendarovski and Crvenkovski Part of Balkan Leadership Conference

At the Balkan Leadership Conference headlined “Western Balkans’ Integration into the EU: Challenges and Perspectives”, organised by the Podgorica Club, President Stevo Pendarovski said the EU had to display greater care for the region.

As he pointed out, at the December summit, the Council has a chance to make a decision for swifter integration of the Western Balkan countries. Ex-President Branko Crvenkovski said all unprecedented things possible had been done in the case of North Macedonia, while the unscrupulousness of the EU had been exposed in terms of respecting fundamental values on which it is founded.

ExCroatian President Mesic stated it would be bad news for the Western Balkans if the EU decided to admit Ukraine and Moldova instead of countries from the region.
