The European Commission “supports Serbia’s efforts towards EU integration and has no new requirements,” says Branko Ružić.
The minister without portfolio in in the Serbian government in charge of EU integration spoke on Tuesday after he and head of Serbia’s team for EU accession talks Tanja Miščević met with EU Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fule.
EU integration is a challenge, he stated, adding that an agreement was reached with Fule for obstacles to be removed through joint effort, so Serbia could become a member of the EU within a reasonable timeframe.
The media reports about new requirements being set for Serbia are just speculations, he noted.
“The framework for the talks is clearly defined, on the political, technical and expert levels,” he stressed.
