The EU special envoy for Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Miroslav Lajcak says Western Balkans should join the European Union as soon as possible, because, according to him, "it's not known how long this stability will last".

He says that with the war in Ukraine, the EU should no longer view the Balkans as a region which can still wait to join the bloc.

"The war in Ukraine changed many things, the rules, the world architecture, it brought many negative things, but it also led to something positive: the EU woke up and no longer considers Western Balkans as a peaceful region which can wait," Lajcak said in a speech during a NATO forum dubbed "To be secure (2BS)".
