The Participants in the ministerial meeting, hosted by Minister of State for Europe and the Americas Alan Duncan, were the Foreign Ministers of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Croatia, Bulgaria, Poland, top officials from Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, France and European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn.

The officials exchanged opinions on regional security, resolving open bilateral issues and migration. They also discussed modalities of greater participation of young people in activities carried out under the auspices of the Berlin Process, the role of the civil sector, the digital agenda and entrepreneurship.

The officials confirmed commitment to reaching a stable, secure and prosperous region, based on European values, which is in the function of European security.

Unambiguous support for the European perspective of the Western Balkans was expressed unanimously.

Minister Darmanović stressed that Montenegro continues to develop friendly relations with its neighbours, based on the principles of mutual trust and respect, recalling that the priorities of Montenegrin foreign policy are strengthening of regional cooperation and good neighbourly relations, closely related to the process of integration and meeting the political criteria for membership in the EU.

There is no sustainable stability and development in the Balkans without its integration into European and Euro-Atlantic structures. The EU and NATO must remain proactive in the region and provide a credible prospect for integration, Minister Darmanović said.
