The annual European Commission Progress Report for Serbia will be postponed until after the European Parliament election which is to take place end of May, Serbia’s public broadcaster reported, citing diplomatic sources in Brussels.

Serbia’s future path toward the EU will be made clearer at an inter-governmental conference in June, and the results of the European election will also influence the EU policy on expansion in the Western Balkans, analysts in Brussels said.

Although it was announced for mid-April, the annual European Commission Report on Serbia and other Western Balkan countries will likely be published on May 29.That is a sign that member countries see expansion into the Balkan region as a risk for their internal plans ahead of the election, RTS reported.
