EURACTIV.cz | Has the war opened a window of opportunity for EU enlargement? Just an illusion, real change takes time and commitment of all

In the framework of the conference Think Tank Forum: EU enlargement, an article on the views of member and candidate states on EU enlargement was written in cooperation with EURACTIV.cz.

"If we had asked our citizens a year ago whether Moldova would be a candidate country today, the answer would have been a resounding 'no'. The decision in June was a political decision. It is a great opportunity and it is up to us how we use it."- Cristina Gherasimov, Head of the Moldovan Presidential Office

"Symbolic steps are of great importance, especially in the aftermath of the Russian aggression, which changed everything. It is a way of restoring confidence in the pact between the EU and the regions of the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership. We will show that we understand that if we don't do something, someone else will." - Peter Grk, Secretary General, Bled Strategic Forum, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Slovenia
