Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said in Geneva on Friday that clear and precise indications of the European future of the Western Balkans is important to the entire region.
“It’s a good thing that we confirmed the clear and unequivocal support for the European path of our countries. We will continue the reforms because of our citizens and everything important but also because we want to be members of the European Union,” Vucic wrote on his Instagram profile (BuducnostSrbijeAV) following a meeting organized by the World Economic Forum.
He said that he would meet with French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday and would ask him who can join the EU. The president said that a decision has to be taken on who can join the EU quickly and who can get access to structural funds and the single market. There are a lot of ideas and decisions have to be taken in the next seven months. We have to know by May next year.
According to Vucic, anyone who does not see that the EU needs the countries of the Western Balkans as much as they need the Union does not understand the future of European policy.
