Czaputowicz said that his country wanted to increase stability and development of Western Balkans through stronger cooperation with the region’s countries.
Poland’s top diplomat was speaking at the 6th Western Balkans Summit in the western Polish city of Poznań.
During the gathering, which runs until Friday, heads of government from more than a dozen European nations are slated to discuss a range of issues that are key for the Western Balkans region.
The summit is being held as part of the Berlin Process, an initiative launched by Germany and aiming to promote regional cooperation among Western Balkan countries aspiring to join the European Union.
The Berlin Process brings together EU membership candidates Montenegro, Serbia, North Macedonia and Albania, and potential candidates Bosnia-and-Herzegovina and Kosovo, as well as eight EU member states.
Poland this year holds the rotating presidency of the Berlin Process.
