(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUN 17 - Slovenian President Borut Pahor emphasised the significance of dialogue about EU enlargement to the Western Balkans during his participation in the Prespa Forum Dialogue in Ohrid, North Macedonia, on Thursday, according to the Slovenian news agency STA. Speaking at the event's main panel, which runs till Saturday, Pahor presented a letter he submitted to EU Council President Charles Michel, advocating for Bosnia and Herzegovina to be awarded EU candidate status without first meeting prerequisites. According to a press release from the president's office, Pahor believes this will bolster pro-EU forces in the country and accelerate Bosnia's dynamic in adhering to European values. Accelerating the Western Balkans enlargement process would have a substantial impact on security, stability, and prosperity in the area, according to the president, who urged Bulgaria to quit blocking EU-North Macedonia accession negotiations.
