Head of the EU Delegation to Serbia Emanuele Giaufret urged all Serbian political parties on Oct. 22 to return to a constructive dialogue, which he said was key to Serbia moving forward on its path to the European Union (EU), because, as he said, the political climate remained polarized.
"When it comes to the inter-party dialogue conducted to reach a broader consensus, I believe that work on that dialogue is extremely important on the path towards the EU, as the political climate in Serbia remains polarized. That is why we are inviting everyone to be part of a constructive dialogue, since all of this leads to a single goal - improving Serbia's progress in the accession process," Giaufret said after a meeting with the Serbian speaker, Ivica Dacic.
Giaufret recalled after a meeting with Prime Minister Ana Brnabic that the European Commission's report on Serbia reflected an increase in the number of initiatives by the government to meet EU criteria over the past few months, which have the potential to translate into tangible progress once fully implemented, says a press release. The EU ambassador also said that earlier this month the EU and its members used a conference in Brdo near Kranj, Slovenia, to reaffirm their commitment to Serbia's EU perspective and accession process.
