President Aleksandar Vucic told the Serbian state TV that the country confirmed its determination to become a member of the European Union at the Zagreb summit.

“We want less talk of perspective and more about the expansion process. Serbia wants to be in the EU and we want to get a concrete answer,” Vucic said, adding that three issue dominated the video conference – economic recovery after the coronavirus pandemic, continuing reforms and the expansion process.  

“The EU is our strategic goal but I will not cow tow to anyone and speak out against China and Russia,” he said.  

The president said that he asked the EU for more grants rather than loans but added that Serbia “will obviously have the highest growth in Europe” after the pandemic.

He said he also asked for an exemption for the Serbian steel industry and received confirmation that it would be considered. “The Smederevo steel plant is our biggest exporter, the essence of our economic growth,” Vucic said.
