Serbian PM Mirko Cvetković thinks that his country will become a candidate for EU membership by the end of this year. He said on Monday during his visit in Brussels that it was necessary to “make great effort and reach political agreement in Serbia”. “The ball is in our yard now. We know exactly which reforms we should conduct, we have the exactly set deadlines, and it’s up to us whether to do this or not,” Cvetković said.
The Serbian PM on Monday delivered Serbia’s answers to the EC questionnaire and said he was satisfied with the visit.
He stressed that if Serbia doesn’t became a candidate by the end of 2011, the process “will perhaps be postponed for several years”.
