The EU High Representative Federica Mogherini and EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn held a working session with the leaders of all six Western Balkans partners on Wednesday evening, in the margins of 72nd UN General Assembly, in New York.

The meeting was useful "to further advance the work on the European Union integration path of the whole region", they say in a joint statement.
