Resolution on Serbia coordinated in European Parliament

STRASBOURG – A new resolution on Serbia was coordinated in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Thursday and will be voted on by the EP Foreign Affairs Committee on January 28.

The Foreign Affairs Committee debated amendments by MEPs to a draft resolution tabled by the EP rapporteur for Serbia, David McAllister, in December.

Opening the debate, McAllister said that the Serbian government remains actively committed to its strategic objective of EU accession.

Serbia has achieved significant progress on its EU path – the opening of the first negotiation chapters in December was a deserved recognition of progress achieved over the past months, in particular in normalisation of relations with Kosovo, he noted.

The Committee will vote on the coordinated resolution in Brussels next Thursday. It should be passed at the EP’s February 3 plenary meeting in Strasbourg.
