    (ANSAmed) - BRUXELLES, 06 DIC - The Western Balkans must choose whether to stand on the side of democracy, with its friend and partner the EU, or take a different direction, European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said Tuesday on arriving at an EU-Western Balkans summit in Tirana on Tuesday.

    She urged countries in the region to take a position against authoritarian states like Russia and China, adding that the EU is the largest investor and closest partner of the Western Balkans. (ANSAmed).
