European Commission Adopts Western Balkans Strategy

European Commission Adopts Western Balkans Strategy European Commission Adopts Western Balkans Strategy

EU Parliament President Antonio Tajani said that a continued dialogue was necessary albeit he did not mention the term "full recognition" - something many in Serbia reject upfront.

Later on Tuesday the European Commission is due to announce a Western Balkans strategy that will set 2025 as target date for Serbia and its small former federal partner Montenegro to join the EU.

The strategy document explains the steps that need to be taken by Montenegro and Serbia to complete the accession process with a 2025 perspective, the only two countries with which accession talks are already underway.

The strategy also calls for regional cooperation, good neighbourly relations and reconciliation, noting that the process of securing justice for the victims of the wars of the 1990s is incomplete. But against the backdrop of worries in some European members about the cost of the new wave of enlargement and the slow progress of the region in political, judicial and economic reforms, more and more Western Balkan citizens are beginning to wonder whether European membership will arrive in the foreseeable future. Whether this is achieved will depend on their objective merits. Chapter 34 -Institutions and Chapter 35 - Other Issues were provisionally closed, as Montenegro has nothing to adopt in the sectors.

More than ten European Union members offer the six Western Balkan countries applying for European Union membership to be eligible to attend high-level bloc meetings before they formally join it.

He added that the European Union wants to "give its hand" to its partners in the Western Balkans and help them continue along the "hard road" of European Union integration.

"With sustained effort and engagement, Bosnia and Herzegovina could become a candidate for accession", it suggests.

He said the Commission would support the Pelješac Bridge project as well as those being worked on in Dalmatia as they were important Croatian and European projects, adding that he rejected attacks on the common cohesion and agricultural policies.
