lovenian Foreign Minister Samuel Žbogar says Serbia has done enough to get not only the EU candidate status but also a date for the beginning of the EU talks.
“The Slovenian and the Serbian government think alike, and that is why we should work together. I also believe that Serbia should get the EU candidate status and the date for the beginning of the EU accession talks,” he said.
“I believe that all of us should fight for this goal, Serbia in the first line, and then Slovenia and all others who can help and suggest why it would be good if Serbia continued its EU pathway,” the Slovenian minister added.
“If the negotiations start in 2012 that would be very fast, given that the agreement which is signed with the EU takes a year and a half to be ratified. Therefore, 2019 is realistic for the full-fledged EU membership,” Žbogar explained.
