Bulgaria’s and Croatia’s accession to Schengen was also among the topics discussed at the meeting between Rumen Radev and Andrej Plenkovi?. Both shared the position that what has been achieved by both countries should be acknowledged, and it should lead to results. The Bulgarian Head of State emphasised the effective fight against corruption, crime and illegal migration as a key factor of our country’s achievement in the ambitions for becoming a member of Schengen. “We share a common path in this, and it should be marked, not by competition, but by partnership,” the Croatian Prime Minister pointed out.
 
The European perspective of the Western Balkans was also discussed. Andrej Plenkovi? stated that it is in the interest of the entire region to achieve progress in the accession talks for the Republic of North Macedonia.
