„We talked about the Balkans. Over the past week I have been to a number of countries in the Western Balkans, and I am pleased to hear that my colleagues continue to share our earlier joint position that there should be an acceleration of the process for accession of the Balkan countries to the European Union. I am also pleased that today the Serbian authorities, the court, have decided to release the three Albanian Kosovo police officers; this has gone some way to easing the rapidly growing tension.”
