SOURCETanjug

LUXEMBOURG – The EU has encouraged Serbia to intensify implementation of reforms in key areas such as the judiciary, the fight against corruption and organised crime, and freedom of expression and the media, and also expects Belgrade to further normalise its ties with Pristina and align its foreign policy with the EU.

In a report on the priorities of the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy for 2016, released on Monday, EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini said that, as part of its EU accession talks, Serbia was expected to focus on rule of law, having opened Chapters 23 and 24.

“The EU encourages Serbia to take this positive momentum forward and to intensify legislative reforms and their effective implementation in the key areas of judicial reform, fight against corruption and organised crime, and freedom of expression and the media.”

  1. “Normalize ties with Pristina”? Sleazy, deceptive language of Western diplomacy. Why they don’t just say what they mean, and what they are relentlessly working on for their US master: recognize “independence” of the NATO occupied and detached Serbian province, in violation not only of the Constitution of Serbia, but also Resolution 1244 SC OUN. Krimea seceded from Ukraine peacefully, and in accord with democratic procedure, yet is labeled by the West as “aggression” and “occupation” by Russia. But when they actually do that to Serbia, it all swell. It’s called “normalization”.
