“The ‘Berlin Process’ is very helpful. I am extremely grateful to German Chancellor Angela Merkel because she has created it. Otherwise nothing would have moved. Now some things are progressing and it depends much on the region for the things to move forward,” says the former Vice-Chancellor of Austria, Erhard Busek.
The veteran Austrian politician made that comment in Tirana in an interview with Albanian Daily News a few weeks before the 2018 London Summit which is the fifth annual event in the frame of the Berlin Process initiative for European integration of the Western Balkans states.
