European Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi said on Tuesday that a new commitment to implement reforms exists in Serbia but that those reforms have to be deeper.

Serbia has to deepen the reforms in the fight against corruption, freedom of the media, processing war crimes at home and fighting organized crime, he said at a presentation of the European Commission progress report on the Western Balkans.

According to the commissioner, Serbia’s progress on rule of law and normalizing relations with Kosovo are fundamentally important and will continue to set the rhythm of the negotiations on Serbia’s accession to the European Union.
