Merkel: The EU should not set a date for the accession of the Western Balkans

Outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel has stated after the Brdo Summit that the EU should not set a date for the opening of negotiations on the Western Balkans.

"I do not really believe in setting dates, I believe in fulfilling our promises: Once the conditions are met, acceptance can be made," Merkel told the conference.

Merkel added that " a deadline would put the EU under pressure, regardless of whether the Western Balkans met the conditions set by the bloc or not."
