  BRITISH HOUSE OF THE LORDS WARNS ON DANGER FROM BALKANS ISOLATION FROM THE EU

British peers warn on danger from isolation of the Balkan countries due to EU decision that there should be no further enlargement until institutional changes had been agreed, MIA's correspondent reported from London.
Lords EU Committee report said that the expansion should continue warning that the EU could face with "strict selection" among the integration of the countries of the Western Balkans in the EU or their turning into protectorate countries.
They added the countries of the western Balkans - Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Albania - were "fragile and fractious" and could return to sectarian violence without the prospect of EU membership.
The peers said "an artificial 'pause' ... would be destabilising for applicants and could become a trap from which it would be difficult to emerge".
All applications should continue to be handled on their merits, in a measured way, they said.
They recommended that governments should acknowledge that the constitution - which was rejected by French and Dutch voters in 2005 - will not be adopted in its current form.
And the perception of countries from the Balkans or the former Soviet Union as being "poor, politically unstable and ridden by problems of organised crime" had fuelled opposition.
Lords EU Committee report urged EU leaders, some of whom had their own "hostile and ambiguous" approach, to champion enlargement.
