Minister of European Integration Jadranka Joksimović has stated today that Serbia was expecting and was ready to open three chapters in the EU membership negotiations, and she deemed that it would be fair.

As she added, two chapters have already become the usual dynamic when it comes to opening chapters in the negotiations between the EU and Serbia.

The Minister pointed out that Serbia based its expectations primarily on the positive messages coming from the EU - from the President of the EC Jean-Claude Juncker, who, she said, clearly designated Serbia and Montenegro as the process leaders and advocated quicker opening of chapters, as well as from Federica Mogherini who expressed the view that Serbia had made extremely good progress in the field of reform and integration.

We were ready to open at least three chapters and I believe that that would have been fair - said Minister of European Integration in the Government of the Republic of Serbia Jadranka Joksimović in an interview for Politika. On the occasion of yesterday's news that two instead of three chapters would be opened on 11 December in our country’s negotiations with the EU, our interlocutor pointed out:

- It is important that there is no delay in the dynamics of the negotiation process, which I still believe can and must be expeditious. I hope and I believe that this is not a slowdown for Serbia on its European path, because that would not contribute to pro-European enthusiasm - emphasised the Minister of European Integration.

She said that she had always provided realistic assessments and had never raised “expectations of the public and of our citizens in relation to the negotiations”.

- Having regard to the announcement made by President Juncker on the acceleration of the enlargement process, the recent statement by High Representative Mogherini on Serbia's exceptional progress and the views of individual member states that Serbia should open all chapters for which it was ready, it was natural to expect the opening of three chapters - stated Jadranka Joksimović.
