Merkel: No change of borders in the Balkans

Following a meeting with the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denis Zvizdic, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has noted that there can be no border changes in the Western Balkans. 

“Territorial integrity of Western Balkan countries is settled and inviolable,” Merkel said at a joint press conference with Zvizdic. 

Merkel added that this view needs to be continuously reaffirmed because of tendencies to discuss borders. 

“There is a European perspective for all countries of the Western Balkans,” Merkel added.
