Today, too, there will be no press review because the European Commission will present the #enlargement package. Most impatiently is awaited the report on #Turkey but also on #Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia where the situation is very serious geopolitically and internally. For sure, the reports on Bosnia and Herzegovina are also to look forward to. Probably the only "boring" report will be on Albania. The presentation begins in a few minutes. Stay tuned for live updates!
