The G7's foreign ministers have confirmed their joint devotion to security, economic recovery and a European perspective for the Western Balkans as a key investment in peace and stability and added that they supported  further progress in regional cooperation, especially through the Common Regional Market, Green Agenda for the Western Balkans and Berlin Process.



In a joint statement the ministers called on Kosovo and Serbia to constructively join negotiations as part of an EU-mediated dialog and fully normalize their relations through a comprehensive and legally binding agreement that contributed to regional stability.

The ministers of the West's seven most developed countries also supported the official opening of negotiations on joining the EU with Albania and North Macedonia and conducting reforms with regard to negotiations on EU membership with Montenegro and Serbia, a joint statement posted by European External Action Service (EEAS) states.

The G7 foreign ministers also strongly rejected any attempt to undermine the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, pointing out that unjustified speculation on changing borders along ethnic lines were not a solution to the challenges that the region faces and that these changes would pose a threat to regional security.
