European Parliament (EP) President Martin Schultz believes the EU should set a date for the beginning of the EU accession negotiations for Serbia.
He stressed that the EP’s Foreign Affairs Committee would say in a draft resolution that Serbia had make a great effort.
“I believe the EU leaders should set a date for the start of Serbia’s negotiations if Serbia continues to implement reforms and play a constructive role in the region,” Schultz told Belgrade-based tabloid Kurir.
He underscored that it would be said in the draft resolution on Serbia that Serbia had made great progress but that “ there is no room to celebrate in advance”.
“You still have a lot of work ahead of you, primarily in combat against corruption and organized crime, as well as on strengthening of state institutions and judicial system,” the EP president explained.
