Serbia and the countries of the Western Balkans will need 50 or 60 years to reach the standard of living of the EU member states, according to a report by the UK parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee that was presented at the recent Western Balkans summit in London. Even though many problems stemming from the violent conflicts in the 1990s have been resolved, the area is still burdened with other issues.

European Commissioner for Enlargement Johannes Hahn said that Croatia should refrain from hindering Montenegro’s accession talks with the EU. He said this in a response to a question about the opinion on ownership of the peninsula at the entrance to Boka Kotorska, which is the subject of a territorial dispute between Croatia and Montenegro.

Croatian footballers who reached the second place in the Moscow World Cup were welcomed by more than half a million people on the Ban Jelačić square in Zagreb. This is more people than at many other important past events, with the exception of the visit by John Paul II, when about a million people gathered. 

At a meeting between Kosovo’s Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj and Pete Marocco, the United States’ Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict Prevention, Kosovo was praised for its fight against terrorism. During the talks, Haradinaj emphasized that the Kosovo government is committed to ensuring a lasting peace in the country and in the region.
