Ambassador of Slovenia: It is no longer a question of whether Serbia is coming to the EU but when (VIDEO)
Slovenian Ambassador to Serbia Damjan Bergant stated in Belgrade today that the question is no longer whether Serbia is joining the European Union (EU) but when, and assessed that the Slovenian presidency has achieved the priorities it wanted.“I think that in terms of our priorities, we achieved what we wanted. We had a great task and difficulties due to the epidemic (crown virus),” he told reporters ahead of a panel on the EU presidency “From Slovenia to France”.

The Western Balkans was one of the priorities of the Slovenian presidency, and Slovenia is satisfied with the fact that it organized the Summit of EU and Western Balkans leaders on Brdo near Kranj, when a declaration was adopted which, according to Bergant, gives perspectives for the region in terms of enlargement.

“At the end of our presidency, we were successful in reaching an agreement to open a cluster for Serbia at the Intergovernmental Conference, which is a great success not only for the Slovenian presidency but for the entire European Union. It is Serbia’s turn to continue working towards the EU, always I say it is no longer a question of whether Serbia is coming to the EU but when, “he added.

On January 1, 2022, Slovenia will hand over the presidency of the Council of the European Union to France.
