  1. The objective for Serbia to become a full member of the EU 2020 is ambitious, but if the reforms and the task of building the economy approaches the maximum committed by all institutions in Serbia, then it is not so unrealistic

  2. "Asked if the fact that Serbia does not recognize the independence of Kosovo unilaterally proclaimed by ethnic Albanians would pose an obstacle to its EU integration, Kourkoulas replied that the EU supports the deepening of relations between Belgrade and Pristina. "

    No one gives a straight answer when asked that question.

  3. Actually,Serbia can achive the EU membership in 2014-2015 in the recognize Kosovo and show Russia the muddle finger.

    This is the truth.If Serbia doesn't do those,EU will continue to press with reforms and other technicalities,until Serbia will give up.

  4. @Emanuel from Romania
    I believe you repeated this comment previously. Let me reassure you that Serbia is much more ready for EU negotiations than Croatia back when they started their negotiations in 2005. Serbia has been carrying out reforms ever since year 2000.
    It's 2020 in my opinion as long as Vucic is in power. Let's wait and see.

  5. In the best case scenario Serbia will join the EU in 2022.

    Just look at Croatia. Croatia started accession negotiations with the EU in 2005 and joined the EU in 2013.
