Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told Belgrade daily Vecernje Novosti that the economic cooperation agreement that Serbia is set to sign with the EurAsian Economic Union is not political.
Brnabic is scheduled to travel to Russia in 10 days to sign the agreement.
“It does not run counter to the interests of the European Union, it is complementary because Serbia is a country determined to become an EU member which means that an economically stronger Serbia is also in the interest of the EU. We can have freed trade agreement with other countries and groups as long as we are not an EU member,” she said.
Brnabic said that Serbia’s place is in the EU because that is the country’s biggest export market.
