Enlargement was one of the topics discussed at Friday’s meeting in the frames of the Berlin Process in Tirana, which brought together foreign ministers from the region and EU representatives.
Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani said the Process wasn’t a substitute for enlargement, adding that the fact that enlargement was becoming a priority in Brussels, too, was encouraging.
The region must strengthen efforts to implement internal reforms, enhance regional cooperation, and additionally strengthen good-neighbourliness, it was pointed out in the Albanian capital.
Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi said Western Balkan countries would surely join the Union. As he added, the main message is a clear signal that membership is coming for the Western Balkans.
