“The citizens of the Western Balkans can count on Germany’s support,” said Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz before the start of the summit meeting with the heads of government of the six Western Balkan states and the leaders of the EU: “Only by acting together can we create a more sovereign European Union. Only by acting together can we protect European values and the rule of law. Only by acting together can we overcome the enormous challenges.”
