Former European Council President Herman Van Rompuj told the “EU and Serbia: Common Destiny”, held in Belgrade on Tuesday, that he was looking forward to the day when Serbia would become a European Union member state, while President Aleksandar Vucic said that if any country became a new EU member it would be Serbia, the FoNet news agency reported.

Van Rompuj said the EU and Serbia had shared values, democracy and geography, that the country was encircled with the EU states and that its destiny was in the bloc.

Commenting on Belgrade – Pristina relations, Rompaj said Kosovo and Serbia had to build confidence.

Vucic said his country had a lot to do, but Kosovo had always been the issue.

He added that North Macedonia and Greece were dealing with a name when reaching a historic agreement last year, and not with a single square meter.

“Everyone expects Serbia to recognise Kosovo’s independence, but what is offered to Serbia? Once, it may be an EU member. But what’s the real offer? I asked them ‘if we settle that, will we become a member?’ They said - ‘you are a pragmatic man, see what the circumstances are'.” Vucic said.    

Earlier on Tuesday, Rompaj told Belgrade daily Politika the EU remained firmly committed to encouraging Serbia on its European path because they share a common destiny.
