Lithuania will back Serbia’s EU integration

Lithuanian FM Linas Linkevicius said that his country would not block Serbia’s EU accession despite “not the best of relations”.

If it gets a date for the start of the EU accession negotiations in June, Serbia will still face an uncertain period in the integration process bearing in mind that Lithuania will take over the EU presidency in the second half of 2013.

Relations between Serbia and Lithuania have been tense since the election for the UN General Assembly president and unsuccessful privatization of the BIP brewery.

Linkevicius admitted that the two countries’ relations were not at the best possible level but stressed that this should not halt Serbia’s progress in relations with Brussels.
