Minister for European Integration Jadranka Joksimovic said on Friday that Serbia could become a member of the European Union in the next 5-7 years.

“I am sure that Serbia’s membership in the EU is certain and just a matter of circumstances, time and our readiness and I am really counting on Serbia becoming a member in the next five to seven years,” she told a ceremony to grant expert support to 30 local administrations as part of the EU Exchange 6 program.

Joksimovic said that Serbia is a leader in the region in terms of the accession process adding that it is politically all right to support the development of the entire region which is in its interest.

According to her, Serbia is actively working on Cluster 5 even though Cluster 3 will not be opened during the French EU presidency.
