Mark highlights the importance of political and diplomatic dialogue in the western Balkans

26th June 2018

Ahead of the 2018 Western Balkans Summit in London in July, Mark questions the Foreign Secretary about the importance of political and diplomatic dialogue in the western Balkans region rather than nationalism.

Ahead of the important Balkans conference, does the Foreign Secretary agree that political and diplomatic dialogue, particularly in the western Balkans, rather than nationalism gives that region a bright future?

My hon. Friend is completely right and we look forward to welcoming all participants to the Western Balkans summit on 12 July where, among other things, we will be able to chart the progress that has been made on the Macedonian name issue.
