European Commission spokesman Peter Stano said a story published by some portals in BiH that Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa had handed over an unofficial diplomatic document to European Council President Charles Michel, in which he allegedly proposed changing the borders of the Western Balkans and partitioning BiH. was invented on ethnic grounds.
"The EU's position is very clear and there is nothing that needs to change. We need to work on regional cooperation and reconciliation. "That is the idea and logic of the accession process - an attempt to resolve all issues so that the process does not go into dangerous areas, adhering to European laws and principles," Stano said.
Regional media reported yesterday that Prime Minister Jansa handed over a "non-paper" to Michel outlining a strategy to "finalize the break-up of the former Yugoslavia", including through the partition of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also into northern Macedonia, Kosovo and Montenegro. Jansa then denied this information.
Ahead of Stano's statement, a spokesman for European Council President Charles Michel said they could not confirm the existence of a non-paper handed over by the Slovenian prime minister.
"I can not confirm that we received that non-paper." the spokesman replied.
