TANJUG_maliSTRASBOURG -The European Parliament (EP) is debating the resolution on Serbia Wednesday, which calls for opening key Chapters 23 and 24 in EU entry talks as soon as possible, welcomes the progress achieved in the normalisation of Belgrade-Pristina relations and encourages Serbia to continue with economic reforms. 

The resolution, which is due to be passed Thursday, was drafted by EP Rapporteur for Serbia David McAllister. It calls on Belgrade and Pristina to implement the deals reached so far in full and timely and notes this is important for Serbia’s advancement along the EU path.

In the final draft of the document, which Tanjug has seen, the EP calls on Serbia to tackle decisively the systemic and socio-economic reforms, ensure the work of judges and prosecutors is free of political influence and step up efforts in the fight against organised crime and corruption.
