UK exit from the EU will in no way affect the prospects of EU accession of Western Balkan countries. German Chancellor Angela Merkel assured this at the EU mini-summit in Paris, Deutsche Welle reports.

"It is very important that we have noted the prospect of accession of the Western Balkans states. The UK decision changes nothing", Merkel stressed.

She added that the issue of membership is a question of the conditions in order to "promote the accession process".

French President Francois Hollande and Prime Minister of Croatia Tihomir Oreshkovich made the same statements.
