In his State of the Union Address EC President Jean-Claude Juncker called on unity when it comes to the Western Balkans. Speaking before MEPs, he said:
“The world has not stopped turning. It is more volatile than ever. The external challenges facing our continent are multiplying by the day.
There can therefore be not a moment’s respite in our efforts to build a more united Europe.
Europe can export stability, as we have done with the successive enlargements of our Union. For me, these are and will remain success stories – for we were able to reconcile Europe’s history and geography.
But there is more to be done. We must find unity when it comes to the Western Balkans – once and for all. Should we not, our immediate neighbourhood will be shaped by others,” President Juncker said.
