On this occasion, Brnabić emphasised that comprehensive reforms are primarily in the interest of the citizens of Serbia. She expressed the expectation that the European Parliament’s report on Serbia’s progress, expected at the end of November, will be positive, adding that she is aware that there is still a lot of work to be done in the area of strengthening the rule of law and achieving progress in Chapters 23 and 24.

The Prime Minister explained that the reform of the judiciary is underway and that the final version of the constitutional amendments, in line with the suggestions of the Venice Commission, will soon be in the parliamentary procedure.

The officials highlighted that commitment to negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina is crucial for further progress and preservation of the stability of Serbia and the entire region and expressed a strong belief that the dialogue will continue in order to find a lasting and sustainable solution.

The European Parliament Rapporteur praised Serbia’s progress and the government’s efforts to continue implementing the most critical reforms.

McAllister emphasised that Serbia is the leader in the region regarding economic reforms, and praised the government’s commitment to open dialogue with representatives of the civil sector and media and journalistic associations.

It is crucial, he said, to encourage Serbia on its path to the European Union and to provide support in all areas where there is room for improvement.

He said that Serbia, with its open 14 chapters, is on the right track to the European Union, and added that he would insist on opening as many new chapters as possible at the next Intergovernmental Conference of Serbia and the European Union.
