Bulgarian Foreign Minister Strongly Calls for Western Balkans EU Integration

The EU should do everything possible to ensure the integration of the countries from the Western Balkans and to end divisions in the region, stressed Bulgarian foreign minister Nikolay Mladenov at the traditional Bled Strategic Forum in Slovenia.

"We must never forget or waver from our commitment to complete the process is South East Europe and bring in all our neighbors between Bulgaria and Slovenia"," stated Mladenov, adding that the EU should never fail to reaffirm and follow up on the European perspective of the region.

In his speech, entitled "EU in a Multipolar World," the Bulgarian Minister of Foreign Affairs spoke highly of the great merits and potential that the Union has at its disposal to ensure peaceful and prosperous living not only for its own citizens, but also throughout the world.

Mladenov said that in an era of globalization that undermines the roles of states, the EU should act on its ability to bring people together and balance differences through solidarity and dialogue.
