EU-Serbia: Commissioner Füle met new President Nikolić
"What a special day to be here. I have come to participate at the inauguration of President Nikolić to express the trust we have in Serbia to remain and advance on the road to the European Union. I also came because we share the same dream to see Serbia in the European Union one day. I appreciate that President Nikolić will come for his first official visit abroad to Brussels on Thursday, where he will meet High Representative Catherine Ashton, Council President Herman van Rompuy and President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso. Serbia is now a candidate country and the next logical step would be the start of accession negotiations. I'd like underline that there is clarity, transparency and consistency in what is expected from Serbia so that the European Commission can recommend negotiations to start", remarked Commissioner Štefan Füle after the meeting with the Serbian President Tomislav Nikolič in Belgrade on 11th June.
