EWB Interview - Vit: If the EU prefers regatta principle, the Western Balkans is lost

Our Michal Vít in an interview for European Western Balkans explained what are the most crucial topics countries of Western Balkans have to address when thinking about joining the European Union

Our Michal Vít in an interview for European Western Balkans explained what are the most crucial topics countries of Western Balkans have to address when thinking about joining the European Union. Can the WB6 (Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo) countries take inspiration from the cooperation of the Visegrad Four countries before they joined the EU?

The biggest problem is what motivates the countries to cooperate. We cannot copy the Visegrad cooperation and apply it to the Western Balkans. For instance, Croatia, which is the entry market for the EU, is not really willing to assist the Western Balkan countries on their path to the EU and is not even facilitating the market cooperation between the countries.
