Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Monday that Serbia wants to know whether the European Union will expand onto the Western Balkans.

“It’s important for us to know whether the EU will continue expanding or not and that is why we are asking Italy for a clear answer whether the Union wants Serbia or not. We just want to know the situation,” Dacic told a joint news conference with his Italian counterpart Luigi Di Maio.  

Di Maio met earlier with President Aleksandar Vucic who told him that Belgrade is prepared to resume the dialogue with Pristina once the tariffs on Serbian goods are revoked and expressed the hope a compromise solution to the Kosovo problem can be found. The Italian Foreign Minister had a separate meeting with Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.

Dacic said that the region has a lot of bilateral problems, adding that the European future of the Western Balkans is important in resolving them while Di Maio said that his country feels that the EU expansion into the Western Balkans is of crucial importance.  

“I believe that it’s good for the EU to expand its horizons at the moment that it is faced with Brexit,” Di Maio said.
