These countries are advocating that the Western Balkans be placed on the EU’s high-priority list and be provided with full support for the Western Balkan countries’ path to the EU. The non-paper notes that this region is exposed to various influences from abroad and illegal migrants, so it is necessary to harmonize the joint foreign and security policy, as well as to work more closely on harmonizing their views with EU standards.
Through this new document, N1 learned that more frequent meetings should be organized with the representatives of Western Balkans countries and that the ministries of foreign affairs of these countries should hold more regular meetings with ambassadors of EU member states.
Essentially, the document insists the most on the increased presence of the European Union in the countries of the region and their inclusion in this area so that they can join the EU as soon as possible.
