Serbia hopes to become EU candidate in 2008

Belgrade is hoping to receive EU member state statute before the end of the year, a senior Serbian official said.

The condition that has to be met is the full cooperation with the Hague Tribunal. The news was announced by the Serbia Vice MP Bojidar Djelic. Yesterday Djelic met President of EU Parliament Hans-Gert Poettering and EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn.

Djelic also said that if the country was lead by a pro-European government Serbia could enjoy EU membership in 2012. (focus-fen)
