We have to keep our promises if we want to be respected, said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Friday.

Asked what the consequences are if this is the beginning of the end of the EU enlargement process, Juncker said if this is the end of enlargement we should face serious criticism.

We encouraged these countries, helped and visited these countries, and made public promises to these countries. If we want to be respected we have to keep our promises, Juncker said.
