Balkans: Draft, EU prospective reaffirmed, 3.3 bn mobilised

But in text no mention of 'enlargement'

06 May, 17:39

    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, MAY 6 - The European Union is "reaffirming its unequivocal support for the European perspective of the Western Balkans" as one of the main points in a draft declaration from the EU-Western Balkans Zagreb Summit, which will be published on Wednesday evening at the conclusion of the summit, and which ANSA has viewed in advance.

    Other points include being "ready to reinvigorate political dialogue" including with "regular high-level meetings" and mobilising a 3.3-billion-euro package to help partners face the coronavirus pandemic in a spirit of "unity and solidarity" with support and cooperation "that go much further than any other partner has given to the region".

    The declaration, however, doesn't include the word "enlargement", after France and the Netherlands objected at the European Council.(ANSAmed).
