J. Joksimović: Existence of MEI – proof of Serbia’s commitment to European integration

Asked whether she sees herself in the new government as heading the Ministry of European Integration, Minister of European Integration Jadranka Joksimović has told RTS today that a more important thing than who will be at the head of the Ministry of European Integration is the fact that Serbia has established one such ministry, which demonstrates its commitment to European integration.

“The more important thing than the question of whether I will be at the head is the fact that the Ministry exists. Let us not forget, in 2017, Serbia established a full-fledged Ministry of European Integration unlike all other negotiating countries,” stated Joksimović.

She has added that, in this way, Serbia has established a lasting structure demonstrating its commitment to European integration.

“Everything that is submitted for adoption at the government sessions, all laws, must first be assessed through the table of concordance and aligned with European standards, and that is the real reform process; as to who will head the Ministry – we will see,” stated Joksimović.
