Serbia belongs in the EU, says president Vučić

Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said yesterday that Serbia belonged in the European Union, that Serbia needed the EU, but also that the EU should show the Serbian people respect.

“Yes, we would like to belong and join the club, and we have a lot of support from the EU and we have never underestimated the support we have gotten so far, but at the same time we have our own opinion and we see what is happening within the Union, between the EU and the US,” the Serbian president told a “leaders’ panel” at the Bled Strategic Forum.

Vučić said that Serbia had to cooperate with the Europeans and Americans on the matter of Kosovo, pointing out that political status would be discussed under EU auspices, while economic issues would be discussed with the Americans.
