Serbia will most likely get EU candidate status

Tuesday is an important day for Serbia, when the country hopes EU foreign ministers will give a green light to their obtaining candidate status following the conclusion of a key agreement with Kosovo.

Serbia is hoping for an historic “Yes” on Tuesday when EU foreign ministers meet to decide whether to grant it EU candidate status or not.

Their decision must then be approved by EU leaders at the beginning of March.

The EU meeting comes just after Belgrade and Pristina finally agreed a compromise on the vexed question of Kosovo’s representation at regional meetings.

Progress in talks with Kosovo was the main condition that Brussels set for Serbia in order to obtain candidate status.

Serbian officials have since hailed the agreement, maintaining that it has cleared the path towards candidacy.
