Meeting with the representatives of the EU-Serbia Stabilisation and Association Parliamentary Committee
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met earlier today with the representatives of the European Union-Serbia Stabilisation and Association Parliamentary Committee (SAPC).
President Vučić congratulated Tanja Fajon for the election to the position of the Chair of Delegation to the European Union-Serbia Stabilisation and Association Parliamentary Committee. He positively assessed the agreement of the member states' leaders on holders of the most important positions in the EU and expressed hope that the EU institutions, as well as the new members, will continue to support the enlargement policy and the European path of Serbia.
President Vučić said that Serbia welcomes the election of Vladimír Bilčík to the position of the new European Parliament rapporteur for Serbia and expressed gratitude to his predecessor David McAllister for his contribution and active support to the European integrations of Serbia.
„Serbia seeks peace and stability in the region, while regional cooperation, strengthening of relations with neighbours and continuation of the reconciliation policy will continue to be our foreign policy priorities", emphasised President Vučić and added that Serbia attributes high importance to the Berlin Process, whose significance reflects in providing support to the European integrations of the Western Balkans through concrete projects and measures.
The SAPC Chair Tanja Fajon said that the European Parliament seeks the EU enlargement and that Serbia remains to be the frontrunner. She congratulated for the economic successes of Serbia and thanked for the possibility presented to the European Parliament to mediate in the dialogue between the authorities and the opposition. Fajon expressed her concern regarding media freedom but also congratulated for the creation of the media strategy.
„The European Parliament will continue to actively support the EU enlargement policy and will advocate the Serbian approach as the best manner to advance in the European integrations“, said Fajon and added that she expects the European Council to alter its decision regarding North Macedonia and Albania and that it will convey a positive signal to these countries before the EU-Western Balkans Summit to be held in Zagreb.
