“European Union (EU) High Representative Federica Mogherini said on Wednesday the Western Balkans leaders were united in supporting the Skopje – Athens agreement on a new name for the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on normalisation of relations, the Beta news agency reported.

Mogherini held an informal meeting with all six leaders from the Western Balkan countries in Brussels and insisted they should work together more than ever on their common goal to join the bloc, to consolidate the peace and security in the region and to invest in further regional cooperation, for the benefit of all the people in the region, an EU statement said.

It added the Western Balkans leaders committed themselves to further integration with the EU in a spirit of good neighbourly relations and reconciliation.” (N1)
