BUCHAREST – Due to its geostrategic position, the Western Balkan region has always been an area where the influences and interests of different powers crossed, which also influenced the strategic directions of certain countries, as well as relations in the region,” said Minister of European Affairs of Montenegro, Aleksandar Andrija Pejović.

Pejović participated in the sixth Bucharest Forum, organised by the Aspen Institute and the German Marshall Fund Office in Romania.

He pointed out that over the last decade, despite the significant internal opportunities and challenges that the countries of the region are facing, it is noticeable that all countries, although unevenly paced, move forward, and that the geopolitical formation of the region, in line with the interests and values of the EU, leads to a long-term stability and gradual economic development of this part of Europe.

“It is important to maintain a clear European perspective, through greater engagement and support of the EU countries to the Western Balkans, which will ensure a successful continuation of reforms and weaken the influences that only cause disadvantage to the region,” said Minister.
