EC gives green light for accession talks with Serbia

The European Commission (EC) recommended on Monday that negotiations with Serbia on membership of the European Union (EU) begin.

A report published on Monday reads that “Serbia has taken very significant steps towards visible and sustainable improvement in relations with Kosovo, in line with the Council conclusions of December 2012.

“Serbia has actively and constructively engaged in the EU-facilitated dialogue with Pristina and entered discussions on the whole range of issues necessary to achieve visible and sustainable improvement in relations with Kosovo,” the report says.

The Commission will continue to monitor Serbia’s progress in complying with the membership criteria and the conditions of the Stabilization and Association Process.
