Former Swedish Prime Minister and international Balkan envoy Carl Bildt warned that France, the Netherlands and Denmark – the countries who objected to EU enlargement – are opening the Balkans for other powers.

This is not a small thing! By blocking the start of Balkan accession talks France, Netherlands and Denmark has not only violated previous commitments but also deprived E.U. of any credible strategic approach to this important region. Who will pick up the pieces?, Bildt tweeted today.
