Lajčak: Significant step forward, powerful message to Serbia

Miroslav Lajčak

BRUSSELS – We have opened the chapters, making a significant step forward in bringing Serbia and the EU closer together, and this also means that Serbia will move forward in the enlargement process if it delivers on its homework, Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčak said after the Third Serbia-EU Intergovernmental Conference (IGC) on opening negotiation chapters 23 and 24.

The enlargement policy “is the most effective tool to promote stability, prosperity and sustainable democratic reforms in the neighbourhood of the EU,” Lajčak told a press conference.

Slovakia is a country that has made the process a priority of its EU presidency, which is committed to maintaining the credibility of the process, Lajčak said.
