TANJUG_maliBRUSSELS – European Commission (EC) spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic confirmed Tuesday the EC had received and was considering a letter from Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic warning EU institutions of Croatia’s anti-Serb policy, and noted that the EC expected all Western Balkan countries to respect their obligations and European principles.“The accession process of the Western Balkan countries, including a country that is now an EU member state, is based on reconciliation, good-neighbourly relations and regional cooperation. These principles continue to be implemented and they are seen as a commitment, as well as an obligation of the entire region,” Kocijancic told Tanjug in Brussels’ first reaction to Vucic’s letter.

The EC’s official response to the letter can be expected soon, she noted.
