A declaration on the future of a modern European Serbia will be presented to the public in Belgrade on Nov. 23 under the auspices of the Serbia 21 – Center for the Future Serbia organization. Speakers at the event will include MPs, opposition politicians and representatives of several non-governmental organizations.

The declaration’s initiators believe that everything ought to be done for Serbia to reach its key goal – the building of a society resting on firm democratic foundations and institutions, and that it would be devastating for the country if its European future and its EU membership were relativized, BETA was told.

MPs Gordana Comic, Natasa Vuckovic, Vesna Marjanovic, Nenad Konstantinovic and Marko Djurisic, New Party official Aris Movsesijan, Movement of Free Citizens vice president Petar Miletic, and CSO representatives will be among the speakers.

The Declaration says that its initiators and signatories will “consider any relativization of the importance of European integrations as endangering national interests.”

“Stopping, slowing or procrastinating Serbia’s European integration because of internal or international reasons would be a triumph of Serbia’s enemies – enemies of democracy and reforms and promoters of unsolved problems in the region,” the Declaration says.

Its signatories are addressing the public in this way believing that time has come for resolving all open issues in the region and that “any further postponement, especially by preserving the ‘frozen conflict’ conditions only contributes to putting off our facing the reality and turning to development and future,” the Declaration also says.

“Serbia will be able to join ordered, modern and developed countries only if it becomes a full-fledged EU member, with a democratic internal system, accountable and transparent institutions and economic and social relations based on European principles, human rights and achievements,” the authors of the Declaration emphasized.
