The Romanian and Croatian foreign ministers suggested at a March 22 ministerial meeting in Brussels  that a more comprehensive debate was required, as well as support from the European Union to the enlargement process in the Western Balkans, and the EU ministers also received an initiative by six EU member states to support reforms in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The EU ministers also discussed a report by High Representative Josep Borrell on the Union's latest moves in cooperation with Western Balkan partners, and on the Belgrade-Pristina talks against the backdrop of a recent visit to the two two capitals by a EU special representative  in charge of the talks, Miroslav Lajcak.

The Croatian and Romanian foreign minister, Gordan Grlic Radman and Bogdan Aurescu, asked that a comprehensive, strategic debate on the region should take place at the next ministerial session.

Six member states from the Union's south and east had previously asked the EU foreign ministers to focus on Bosnia and Herzegovina, and assist the Western Balkan state, legging well behind the others in implementing key reforms.
