Short description

EU heads of State and Government and those of the Western Balkans will gather on 6 May 2020 for an EU-Western Balkans' leaders meeting to tackle common challenges. Initially foreseen as a summit in Zagreb, the meeting will due to the COVID-19 pandemic now take place via videoconference.


Western Balkans Summit in Zagreb had been planned as one of the main events of the Croatian Council Presidency, aimed at gathering the leaders of the EU and the region for the first time since Sofia Summit in May 2018. It was postponed earlier this month due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The Summit is supposed to be the event to kick off regular meetings between the Western Balkans and the Union that will take place at least once a year.
