Herman Van Rompuy Vucic Conference The EU and Serbia: Shared Destiny

President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic emphasised that Serbia’s interest is to join the EU.
“At least half of our citizens say that the EU is about the recognition of Kosovo. However, rationally speaking, I will promote the EU. It is always better to be in a club than out of it”, said Vucic.

Van Rompuy agreed that the road to the European Union has many obstacles that will be forgotten once the goal is reached. The ultimate goal, according to him, is the prosperity of the citizens of both Serbia and Kosovo.

It is in the interest of Serbia to have as many as friends as possible – including Turkey, China and Russia, but that the added value of all these countries is much smaller than the value of the EU, said Van Rompuy. Adding “In order to have lasting peace in this region, the European Union is the best guarantee”.
