Angela Merkel

On the occasion of the upcoming virtual summit of the Berlin Process, scheduled for Monday, which will be hosted by Germany, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was convinced the future of the Western Balkans was in a truly United Europe. According to her, there are still a lot of challenges in the region, mistrust and nationalisms haven’t disappeared, while bilateral disputes can flare up, which is why reconciliation is needed. That, Merkel believes, means overcoming the past and doing everything possible so that future generations live in peace.
