Croatia consents to opening of chapters with Serbia

Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy

PARIS – EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn announced in Paris Monday that Croatia had consented to the opening of chapters 23 and 24 in Serbia’s EU accession talks.

“Paris-Balkans 2016 delivers. Croatia confirms OK of opening accession chapters 23/24 with Serbia. European perspective is real!” Hahn posted on his Twitter account.

“Good bilateral meeting with Serbian PM in good mood regarding Serbia’s European future!” Hahn also tweeted earlier on after a meeting with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic on the fringes of Monday’s conference of Western Balkan and EU leaders in Paris.


  1. Wow Serbia must be eternally grateful that it has been thrown a crumb of bread from such a corrupt and collapsing institution . The only possible explanation for Serbia still wanting to join the EU when pretty soon everyone will be wanting to leave, is their leaders must believe there is still going to be some ‘development money ‘to be had. I never heard of anyone already in a lifeboat jumping back onto the Titanic .
