Austrian Chancellor does not like term 

"Western Balkans"

Zagreb should take this guy's comments and run with them:


ZAGREB, Feb 15 (Hina) - Candidates for membership in
the European Union should be evaluated individually,
Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel said in an
interview with Croatian Television on Saturday

Schuessel said he had never liked the term Western
Balkans because it seemed to denote a group of equally
developed countries, which in his opinion was not

Croatia has always been a European country and
oriented towards Europe and it currently meets the
most criteria for applying for full EU membership, he

Asked whether the EU was able to guarantee peace for
all, Schuessel said the EU had been founded as a peace
union, which was the original idea of its creators.

Today the EU, which has 15 and following expansion
will have 25 members, is really a zone of peace and
stability. It is understandable that we wish and have
to expand that zone of stability, the Austrian
chancellor said.
