Solving the Cyprus issue and reuniting the island inside the European Union would be a "game changer" for the country, the Union and the region, the EU's High Representative Federica Mogherini said in the European Parliament plenary on Wednesday, during a debate on Turkey's drilling activities around the island.
On the other hand, they expressed deep regrets about the European Council's failure to set a date for the opening the accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania.
The outgoing EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Mogherini, invited Vucic and other Western Balkans leaders to a farewell working dinner at the EU headquarters in Brussels, and on that occasion, Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic thanked Mogherini for her efforts and support of Belgrade's European integrations, presenting her with a bouquet of white orchids.
Immediately upon arrival, Vucic will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Among others, it will include Russia.
In a statement given to "Politika" daily, he said that in addition to US Envoy Matthew Palmer, it is possible that Germany and France would appoint a joint representative, or that each of these countries has a representative.
"I am convinced that, if we do not do that, we will be sorry in a couple of years", stated Federica Mogherini.
In her address at the annual conference of EU Ambassadors in Brussels, she assessed that the accession of the Western Balkans in the EU is an issue of a reintegration of the whole European continent and that it is necessary for the Balkans, as well as the EU.
As European media report, EU members had officially named Borrell the successor of Federica Mogherini on the position of EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security.
Borrell will take over his duty at the end of October, it is said in the European Council statement.
