PM Babiš: West Balkans should know their EU accession details

The European Union should provide the six West Balkan states with a calendar concerning their accession to the EU, outgoing Czech prime minister Andrej Babiš said at an EU summit in Sophia, Bulgaria, on Thursday.

Mr Babiš said the Czech Republic, along with other V4 countries, including Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, were critical towards the EU for not providing the West Balkan states with any specific dates. He also said the countries’ membership of the EU was in the best interest of the whole Europe.
