BRUSSELS, Sept 15 (KUNA) -- The European Parliament gave its green light on Wednesday to a pre-accession funding instrument that will help seven countries better prepare to meet the obligations of future EU membership.
Worth 14.2 billion euro (USD 16.7 billion), the 2021-2027 Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance will support the implementation of EU-related reforms in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Turkey, said an EP press release.
