SERBIA-EU: PREPARATIONS FOR NEGOTIATIONS UNDER LITHUANIAN PRESIDENCY STARTING NOW” “

"Lithuania upholds Serbia’s aspirations to start negotiations and will try to make sure they will be properly prepared; as to this, we appreciate the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, the current reforms and the progress put in place by Serbia towards this goal". This was stated earlier today by the Lithuanian Prime Minister, Algirdas Butkevièius, after his meeting with the Serbian Prime Minister, Ivica Dacic. The meeting was focussed on bilateral relations, Serbia’s European integration process, and the ratification of the stabilisation and association agreements. Actually, in late June, the European Council decided to start negotiations with Serbia for its accession to the European Union by and no later than January 2014. So the preparatory work will begin under Lithuania’s presidency and the EU Commission will have to start the bureaucratic procedures for the job.” “
