A recent survey conducted in March shows that a bit less than half of the Serbs are in support of their country’s accession in the EU.
The survey was conducted in March by the Institute for European Affairs and Ninamedia on a sample of 1,201 people and the actual number of Serbs who wish to see Serbia in the EU is 49.5%. However, a relevant statement reads that 62% of citizens believe that Serbia benefits from cooperation with the EU.
Citing the findings, europeanwesternbalkans.com reads that “most respondents identified Croatia as Serbia’s biggest enemy among EU nations and Germany as the country’s biggest friend within the bloc.”
What a statement said is that “Young citizens are still considerably more euro-sceptical then the older generations (…) The youngest citizens believe that Serbia benefits from cooperation with the EU the most, but they support the concrete membership of our country in the EU the least. The oldest citizens support Serbia’s EU membership, by two thirds, while the lowest support comes from the youngest citizens and it is just over half.”…. / IBNA
