Bulgarian Foreign Minister: Western Balkans should not be discouraged on EU enlargement

The countries of the Western Balkans should not be discouraged and should actively proceed with the reform process in line with European Commission recommendations, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov said, against a background of the new EC’s policy that there will be no EU enlargement during the EC’s five-year term.
