U.S. Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Zagreb on Wednesday for a Western Balkans summit, highlighting renewed interest from Washington in the fragile region as it deals with an unprecedented influx of refugees.A 4,000-strong police deployment lined the Croatian capital and some schools were closed downtown ahead of the afternoon summit, which brings together eight heads of state and European Union president Donald Tusk.Ahead of the summit Biden met various leaders including Slovenian President Borut Pahor, who said they had discussed how to reduce the number of migrants and preserve stability in the region, without giving details.The region is burdened by the legacy of the 1990s wars that accompanied the break-up of the former Yugoslavia, and it was a U.S.-brokered peace deal 20 years ago that ended the bloodiest conflict in Bosnia.
