European Union (EU) is willing to receive all countries of the Western Balkans that wish to become members, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said here Sunday.


He promised it will "help Serbia to achieve its European goals".

After meeting Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, Barroso talked about progress of Serbia in the implementation of reforms necessary for it to become a member state, Xinhua reported.
