Enlargement of the European Union (EU) continues, said the head of the EU Delegation to Montenegro Aivo Orav, adding that Montenegro was the leading country in the European integration in the Western Balkans with a very clear future in the Union.

He stated that the meeting of European leaders last week, in which they made the Declaration, is the prefered road.

“We know that we want to continue with the peace and stability now that there are so many challenges. Peace in the world is increasingly important to us and we talk about it more and more,” said Orav at a conference on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, organized by the Ministry of European Affairs in cooperation with the Embassy of Italy and the EU delegation.

He said that EU enlargement continues.

As he said, Malta and Estonia are very small countries. “But they would have been much smaller if they were outside the EU. Germany and France are large countries, but are much larger in the Union”.

Orav believes that the exit of the UK from the EU have united member states of the Union to a greater extent. He stated that it is their hope that all countries of the Western Balkans will one day be members of the EU.
