Serbia and Montenegro can decide to make use, if desired

05 February, 17:49

    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, FEBRUARY 5 - The reform in the enlargement methodology announced by the EU is immediately applicable in talks with Albania and Northern Macedonia, EU European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Oliver Varhelyi said Wednesday in illustrating the initiative. If the two countries were to receive the go-ahead for EU accession talks during the March European Council meeting, the new measures will be applied immediately, the commissioner said.

    Varheyli added that the assessment remained the same and that they believed talks should begin. For Serbia and Montenegro, the only two partners for whom accession talks are already underway, the rules remain the same unless other choices are made. Varhelyi said, however, that the two countries could make use of the new measures if they choose to do so.(ANSAmed).
