Bulgaria cannot provide the date of accession of the Western Balkan countries to the European Union but should give them a perspective and a clear direction.

The actual European perspective for the Balkans, according to Minister Pavlova, was in the sphere of security and connectivity – digital, road, railway, energy infrastructure, as well as the dropping of roaming charges.
