Serbian President not optimist about EU candidate status

Serbian President Boris Tadić said in Belgrade on Wednesday that he “cannot express optimism” when it comes to Serbia’s chances of being made a candidate for EU membership.

The European Union is to announce its decision on March 1, but the Serbian president stated that a solution for “the problem of Kosovo and Metohija” was today “a little farther away than it was last night”.

“The situation is worse compared to last night because of the way Priština is putting forward proposals,” Tadić told reporters in Belgrade, specifying that the proposal in question was “out of touch with reality”.

The president conceded that Serbia will find it “very difficult” to become candidate, but vowed to “make an effort until the last moment”.
