German Chancellor Angela Merkel defended today that it is in the strategic interest of the European Union to integrate the Balkan states and that Serbia and other countries in the region must make more democratic reforms to join the bloc.


“All of us, who are already members of the European Union, must always make it clear to ourselves that there is an absolute geostrategic interest in actually including these countries in the EU," Merkel said at a press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade.
