The Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Ditmir Bushati in the context of his working visit to Washington DC attended the conference "Future Storm? Balkans' Future in an Era of Incertitude", organized by the Atlantic Council.
During his speech Bushati underlined that Western Balkans transformation into a real region in the political economic and security aspect remains the main challenge.
"Every Balkans country aspire the European integration and follows different paths in this direction, with 4 candidate countries in different levels. The same thing may be said even for the way in Western Balkans countries cope with various challenges. As consequence the Western Balkans countries foreign policy is not in the same line with that of European Union. Thus our main challenge is to transform the Western Balkans into a real region in the political economic and security aspect," declared Bushati.
