European Council President Donald Tusk's comments came as he started a weeklong tour to prepare for the May 17 summit of EU and Western Balkan leaders.Tusk said the road to EU membership would be tough, but "worth the effort".However, French President Emmanuel Macron has said he thinks the EU should not expand until Brussels itself undergoes reforms.Along with Serbia, the Adriatic nation is slated to be next in line to join the EU, possibly in 2025 .Serbia, which Tusk visits next maintains close ties to Moscow despite formally seeking EU membership.Bulgaria, which currently holds the rotating EU presidency, together with fellow EU members Bulgaria and Greece support Serbia joining the bloc.
