Talks with the foreign ministers from four countries of the Visegrad Group (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary) along with representatives from six countries of the Western Balkans (Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo) and five EU neighbours (Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Slovenia and Italy) were devoted, among other matters, to the EU cooperation with the countries of the Western Balkans and the security of Central and South-Eastern Europe.
Topics prepared by the head of Polish diplomacy, Witold Waszczykowski, were in regards to the challenges facing the EU and its neighbours to the South-East, among others, in the field of security, such as illegal migration, organized crime, terrorism, and hybrid threats.
- The European Union and the Western Balkans must work together both in terms of safety - in the fight against terrorism, hybrid threats and illegal migration, and in the regards to the economy, eg. In the construction of economic infrastructure and energy security - emphasized Joanna Wajda.
