“Great Britain will host the EU-Western Balkan Summit in London on Monday and Tuesday, with less than a year until its exit from the European Union becomes a reality.

This fifth summit convened under the Berlin Process will bring together top officials of six Western Balkan countries, European institutions’ representatives, as well as top officials of nine EU member-states, including Croatia’s Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Interior and Foreign Ministers Davor Bozinovic and Marija Pejcinovic Buric.

The summit will be the fifth to take place under the Berlin Process after Berlin (2014), Vienna (2015), Paris (2016) and Trieste (2017). The Berlin Process is a diplomatic initiative that Chancellor Angela Merkel launched in 2014.

‘Each year it brings together the six Western Balkans countries, like-minded EU partners and representatives of the EU institutions to work together to support security, stability and prosperity in the region,’ according to a press release issued by the British government on its website.

Prime Minister Theresa May will host the Western Balkans Summit in London, “demonstrating our longstanding commitment to the region and to European security.”

The Prime Minister has invited the Heads of Government of the 6 Western Balkans nations: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.” (N1)
