The EP president called enlargement “a positive project for peace and prosperity.”

Enlargement could benefit both the region and Europe as a whole, as it would contribute to ensuring a stable, prosperous, and peaceful continent, David Sassoli told Germany s Funke Media Group.

He said that the pace of accession depends on the Western Balkan countries. 

“Reforms still need to be completed in every single one of these countries,” EP President Sassoli emphasised, adding that the EU has to keep its promises and recognise progress made.
