EC ready to include Western Balkans into plans on opening borders Izvor: N1

The European Commission (EC) said on Wednesday it was ready to closely link the Western Balkans countries to the implementation of the joint European Roadmap towards lifting COVID-19 containment measures, aiming at a gradual restart of the tourism, the Beta news agency reported.

The EC recommendations on freedom of movements and lifting the control on the EU internal borders indicates that special attention will be paid to the situation in the countries in the bloc's neighbourhood.

"In line with the Support to the Western Balkans in solving problems with COVID-19 and the post-pandemic recovery, the EC is ready to link the region to the Roadmap," the Commission said on its website.

The recommendations apply to all EU member states, the Schengen zone members, as well as the zone's associate countries: Norway, Switzerland and Lichtenstein.

They are not compulsory for all EU countries but can help in a gradual and coordinated lifting of travel restrictions and resume of the tourism after several months of a stand-still caused by the pandemic, EC said.
