Serbia to open chapter nine in EU accession talks, Minister says Izvor: Tanjug / Dimitrije Goll

Jadranka Joksimovic, Serbia’s Minister for European Integration, said on Tuesday Belgrade would open chapter nine in its accession negotiation with the European Union, the Beta news agency reported.

The chapter deals with finances and will be the 17th out of 35 opened until May 2019.

Belgrade hoped for at least three new chapters to be opened, if not more Serbia said was ready for, but the latest European Commission reporton the country’s progress toward the EU spoiled that plan since it listed a number of problems in the country regarding democracy, the functioning of the parliament, freedom of expression and media and praising only the economic results.
