“European Commissioner Johannes Hahn told Balkan leaders on Monday that the speed of positive developments has been surprising, adding that a window of opportunity has opened despite some concerns.

‘The speed of positive developments even surprised some and, as a result, everybody is now watching closely. If anything, the pressure to continue delivering has increased. On the EU side, you are facing a window of opportunity: a whole series of very proactive Council presidencies, as well as a fully engaged Brussels. This is not guaranteed eternally,’ the Commissioner for European Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations told a meeting of the prime ministers of the region in the Albanian town of Durres.” (N1)
