‘Serbia must be clear it chooses EU over Russia’


Serbia’s government mustn’t send conflicting signals about its strategic goal of joining the European Union rather than aligning with Russia, Deputy Premier Zorana Mihajlovic said in a thinly veiled rebuke of her party’s ruling partners.
“We who lead Serbia should more clearly say so, to avoid the situations which in the morning we want to be in the EU, and in the afternoon side with Russia,” Mihajlovic, a member of President Aleksandar Vucic’s ruling Serbian Progressive Party, said in an interview with Blic paper.
She spoke after some members of the cabinet praised Serbia’s traditional ties with Russia, which objects to the EU’s expansion into former communist Europe. Serbia is trying to prepare itself for joining the world’s largest trading bloc by 2025, although some political forces in the country of 7 million are trying to put the brakes on accession.
