Tajani: Western Balkans to work hard to integrate in the EU

Tajani: Western Balkans to work hard to integrate in the EU

Sofia, 17 May 2018 (MIA) - The Western Balkans should work hard to integrate in the EU, Antonio Tajani, President of the European Parliament told Thursday’s press conference at the EU-Western Balkans Summit.

Asked about the process of integration of the six countries in the region, Tajani underlined that the dialogue is open, but there is still a lot to go through, MIA reports from Sofia.

“All Balkan countries are part of Europe. If countries want to become part of the EU, they must respect the rules. You should work hard in the right direction. Serbia and Montenegro are moving on the road. They should work hard and this applies to FYROM as well but also to other countries as well. We are not against the integration on the contrary we push this process. We support the democracy, the rule of law, freedom of media, and fight against corruption. The rules must be respected,” Tajani told press conference.

He did not want to comment the name dispute between Macedonia and Greece, only stated briefly “It is not my job.” sk/13:00
