The UK will host the 2018 Western Balkans Summit as part of the Berlin Process, which brings together heads of government and ministers, professionals and civil society from the Western Balkans, specific European partners and EU institutions. The UK intends to make significant political progress on security and justice sector issues at the Summit, the agenda for which will be informed by the conclusions of this meeting.

Discussion were framed around three key aims: developing a shared understanding of key security and rule of law challenges, identifying new approaches to tackling these challenges, improving collaborative working amongst the Western Balkans Six, the UK and also with key international partners.
