Berlin took over from Zagreb and will be a part of the so-called presidential troika with Lisbon and Ljubljana whose mandates will be in 2021.

By the beginning of 2019, the three capitals agreed to closely cooperate in coordinating their rotating presidency mandates and adopted a joint programme for the entire July 1, 2020 -December 31, 2021, period.

The programme includes ‘the continuation of the enlargement to the Western Balkans.'
