EU Foreign Ministers will discuss today about the countries of the region who will be part of the enlargement process, including Kosovo.

As far as Kosovo is concerned, the conclusions that will be drawn are expected to praise the creation of institutions, after a blockage that lasted six months and authorities will be invited to be engaged in the reforms of the public administration, fight against corruption and organized crime, continuation of talks with Belgrade and the implementation of all the agreements reached so far.

Kosovo authorities will be demanded to approve the legal amendments which will enable the creation of the Special court.

Meanwhile, the fate of the integration of Serbia will depend on the normalization of relations with Kosovo.

Serbia will be able to open the first chapter of its accession in the EU once it completely implements the Brussels’ agreement.

EU enlargement commissioner, Johannes Hahn, said that “Brussels’ has made it clear to the authorities in Serbia during a recent visit to Belgrade”.

Meanwhile, a meeting is expected to take place in January between PM Isa Mustafa and the Serb PM, Aleksandar Vucic.

EU foreign ministers will also approve today the conclusions for the progress of Western Balkan, including Serbia. /ibna/
