1. Principa: Absolutely. Serbia's leaders need to do what is in the interests of all citizens, not just those who would benefit from EU membership, notably big business and Government contractors. If some of the policies introduced happen to coincide with what the EU wants then great. If not, tough luck Brussels (and Berlin). This advice pertains to all aspirant countries.

    Ned,
    Principa failed to mention Serbia is negotiating from a position of weakness, as are Greece and Russia. Only the host of the party can send out invitations to guests. Beggars and Party Crashers will be dealt with in the usual way, something Serbia should be accustomed to by now.

  2. just an opinion said "...But do you think that there is anyone who believes a Serb living in Kosovo uses the English version of B92 for news????"

    Why not? Danilo Jurisich, a 1st generation Canadian Serb, who is fluent in the Serbian language, uses the English version of B92 for news.

    I don't need to and I don't have to. Any decent human being does not urge others to start wars and spill blood. No normal human being rejoices at possible future wars. This is not normal. And since you are spending so much time here on B92 I take it you are not fighting or spilling your own blood. If you were you'd classify as a bad fighter, a coward who spends his time browsing the web rather than fighting in the battlefield. Either that or you're full of BS and demagoguery, someone that incites the cries of war at every chance you get but hides behind e keyboard. Did you get your PhD in Sweeden as well and also never lose an argument?

  5. Mutti Merkel may want to make sure her messages are translated into Albanian before Serbian since the stubborn mule in these negotiations wears a qeleshe rather than a šajkača.

  6. i.e. - no Chapters will be opened. Suits me just fine as the European Unity ship is falling apart though not just yet sinking!

    Serbia needs reforms that are in its best interest not because it opens chapters!

    One of the great things about the cyber world is you can be anyone anywhere you want to be. But do you think that there is anyone who believes a Serb living in Kosovo uses the English version of B92 for news????
    But I do think that the EU of 10 years from now will not be the same as today, as you cannot keep adding those who take out of the bucket without adding in to it and survive.
    And I truly believe whole hearted that Serbia needs to initiate reforms in its own best interest, and not just to earn a membership in the EU. However, I think you will find a lot of controversy in what is actually best for Serbia and what a lot of shallow minded people think it is.

  7. You will never join the EUUU…UU
    Not with a compromise and not even with total surrender
    Even if you beg them for forgiveness that you were born
    They will say Nein because Serbien muss sterbien
    Is their true and only agenda and it was ever since
    And if I was a Serb I wouldn't wait until I find out
    If this is really true or not
    And instead just look at the cold facts
    And draw conclusions

    Are you writing this while spilling your blood and claiming victory for your Russian brothers in Ukraine, or are you living comfortably in Sweeden and being the usual armchair patriot and demagogue? If it's the later, then I take it you don't mind others dying for your demagoguery.

    You live in Kosovo opening of chapters will not make a difference for you!!! But i think you relatives in Nis or Novi Sad who are tiered sending you extra salary want to move on.

    I would love for a territory exchange Serbia and Kosovo just like Dacic said this will meant that Serbs from Kosovo will be normal selak again.

  14. perhaps someone should tell merkel to reach an agreement with greece. as serbia had to cut its losses, perhaps germany can too, if it really wants to preserve its european pancea.

  15. Already her tone has changed as the reality of Greece sets in and the British challenge lies ahead.

    It is clear what is happening in slow motion: Moving forward the Balkans will have to live with the Balkans. There will be no more heavy handed outside involvement.

    The richer countries of Europe are no longer interested making way in the Eurozone for the poorer countries of Europe. Greece really stuck it to them.

    Of course the Empire may take some additional time to fully reach that position, but it is underway.

    Predictable outcome.

  16. Vucic needs to take the next step and rather than talking about a referendum removing the Kosovo claim from serbias constitution put one on the ballot. That way Serbia can implement all agreements with pristina. 63% of Serbia already recognizes Kosovo independence.

    IF THEY STILL MEAN IT IN 2030 OF COURSE. BUT FIRST WE'LL SEE HOW MERKEL IS GOING TO REACH COMPROMISE WITH THE GREEK TROTSKISTS TODAY.
