The EU's Security Agenda and the Western Balkans

07 April 2005

The event took place at a very significant moment for Serbia-Montenegro, opening on the same day that EU High Representative Javier Solana secured a new agreement between Serbia and Montenegro to overcome the paralysis in the State Union, and just a few days before the European Commission delivered its positive Feasibility Report, recommending opening negotiations on a Stabilisation and Association Agreement.
