Visit of Nikola Selaković, Serbian Minister for Justice and Public Administration, to Štefan Füle
On 24 September 2012, Štefan Füle, Member of the EC in charge of Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, received the newly appointed Nikola Selaković, Serbian Minister for Justice and Public Administration, at the European Commission to discuss Serbia's progress towards the European Union.
The European Commission is ready to advise and support Serbia in these efforts which is why Štefan Füle attaches such great importance to a confident and close cooperation with the Serbian Minister of Justice and Public Administration.
The forthcoming progress report will review how Serbia complies with the membership criteria. A crucial area on which Serbia is expected to maintain a strong focus is the rule of law: how to bring forward the judicial reform and how to make the fight against corruption and organised crime more effective will be essential questions which Serbia will have to answer to make further progress towards the EU. In this respect, following recent rulings of the Constitutional Court, the Commission expects the Serbian government to devise a new strategy and action plan on the way it will reform its judiciary, based on a functional review.
