At a joint press briefing on 10 June 2008 in Brussels, following his bilateral talks with Bozidar Djelic, Serbian Deputy Prime Minister for EU Integration, Olli Rehn, Member of the EC in charge of Enlargement, welcomed Serbia's National Draft Programme for the country's EU integration.
This is a very professional work indeed, the Commissioner told journalists. He stressed the importance for Serbia to implement this plan if the country wants to move closer towards the European Union.
Referring to political negotiations to form a new government, Olli Rehn expressed hope that the country would soon ensure governmental stability through dialogue and compromise. I am also glad to see that there is more convergence on Serbia's European agenda and EU objectives in the country today, he added. SHOTLIST
