Conference "The Brdo Process" - informal meeting of leaders of the Western Balkans and the European Union

During the official visit between 9 and 10 May 2013 in Zagreb, the Slovenian and Croatian presidents, Borut Pahor and Ivo Josipović, issued a declaration proposing the establishment of an informal political dialogue between the leaders of the Western Balkans and the European Union which was named after the Brdo Process, a series of similar meetings held several years ago.

The initiative was presented to the heads of state of Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia and Albania, who agreed that such informal meetings may be important for creating a positive atmosphere, strengthening reconciliation and mutual cooperation, and resolving political questions between neighbours and the broader region. All of the above may contribute to improving the readiness of states seeking membership of the European Union and increasing the willingness of the EU to continue the enlargement process in this part of Europe.
