Berlin Process leaders, ministers of interior and foreign affairs endorsed this French- and German-led roadmap to address the illegal possession, misuse and trafficking of firearms and their ammunition.

It aims to put in place comprehensive and sustainable mechanisms, fully harmonised with European and other international standards, to identify, prevent, prosecute, and control the illegal possession, misuse and trafficking of firearms, ammunition and explosives. This will make the Western Balkans a safer region, and an exporter of security.

The roadmap was published as part of the Western Balkans Summit in London on 10 July 2018.
