"This is the reason why we need to continue to work on our sovereignty, by anchoring the Western Balkans within the European Union", Macron said on the results of the EU-Western Balkans Summit, which was held in Sofia.

While the European Union side reaffirmed its determination "to strengthen and intensify its engagement at all levels to support the region's political, economic and social transformation" in the Sofia Summit Declaration, the focus lay elsewhere.

It promises better cooperation in the fields of anti-terrorism and border control, doubles Erasmus+ financing, dedicated to the region, and expands the Western Balkans Investment Framework, by launching a set of new connectivity projects.
