The speach of CEAS director Jelena Milić at the conference “Balkan Perspective: Adapting the partnership and integration paths”, organized by the NATO Defense College Foundation in Rome 16.05.2019.
It is a real privilege and pleasure to be a regular participant to these events. I have great regards for them, and they are remarkable occasions for me, although I do attend several high-level international conferences every year and read numerous papers on the Western Balkans and Serbia. And I deeply appreciated the previous intervention of Hon. Marta Grande, who showed an optimistic approach and acknowledgement of the positive developments in Serbia.
