President of the European Council: The EU can not hide the divisions in the

It is still being discussed among the 27 leaders of the European Union whether the bloc can get new members, the EU president said on Wednesday, although the bloc vowed to one day grant membership to Balkan countries.

"With all sincerity, there is discussion among 27 countries about our capacity to receive new members ," European Council President Charles Michel told a news conference after the summit.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen also acknowledged that stalled accession talks between northern Macedonia and Albania were undermining the EU's credibility in the region.
