Zorana Mihajlovic, the Serbian energy minister and a member of the presidency of the Serbian Progressive Party, has said that the Government of Serbia is seeking full membership in the European Union (EU), which, she said “is a mission that I truly believe in,” adding that, “Serbia should do absolutely everything it is supposed to do to fulfill this goal.”

When asked if she was in favor of introducing sanctions against Russia, Minister Mihajlovic said in an interview with the Politika daily published on May 29 that “this would be in the best interest of Serbian citizens.” “We can hardly influence global events, but by taking our own interests as primary, and EU membership is one of these, we are also adopting a stance,” Mihajlovic explained.

The energy minister went on to say that during the election campaign “many political parties, including our partners in the government, said things that were contrary to the position that the state has taken on the crisis in Ukraine.” She underlined that Serbia’s new cabinet would have to be pro-European, stronger and better than the existing government, while the authority of its members would be established based on education and results, not the office that they held.
