TANJUG_maliBELGRADE – By the end of June, Serbia will be ready to open five negotiation chapters in its EU accession talks – it is still unknown when the next intergovernmental conference in Brussels will be held and how many chapters we will open, but we are maintaining the pace of the process, says Serbia’s chief EU negotiator Tanja Miščević.

While three chapters are being discussed in Brussels, it is certain that two will be opened in June: Chapters 7 (intellectual property) and 29 (customs union).

For the most part, both areas have been aligned with European rules.

“We will have five in Brussels by the end of the Maltese presidency – they will be debated, but we must be fully aware the procedures for adopting documents in the EU itself are very long, and that they also imply discussions in Brussels, as well as in the capitals of all 28 member states,” Miščević told the RTS.
