TANJUG_maliBRUSSELS / BELGRADE – Brussels hosted on Tuesday a third meeting of the Stabilization and Association Committee since the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) between the European Union and Serbia took effect on September 1, 2013.

The meeting considered the reforms Serbia had put in place and the country’s progress in meeting the political and economic criteria along its path toward full membership in the bloc.

Representatives of Serbia and the European Commission reviewed the implementation of the Copenhagen criteria for EU accession and the SAA. The fruitful exchanges allowed for the reviewing of key reforms which are being pursued first and foremost for the benefit of the citizens of Serbia, reads a joint release by the European Commission and the Serbian Government EU Integration Office.

The third meeting was co-chaired by Catherine Wendt, acting director of the Directorate General for Neighborhood and Enlargement Negotiations, and Ksenija Milenkovic, acting director of the Serbian EU Integration Office.
