    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, SEPT 26 - Serbia's decision to sign an agreement with Russia for reciprocal "consultations" on foreign policy issues raises "serious questions" for the European Commission, a spokesperson said in a daily briefing.

    "It is clear that such an agreement means wanting to tighten relations with Russia, which is leading an illegal war in Ukraine and whose soldiers are carrying out documented atrocities", stressed the spokesperson. "We take this very seriously: Serbia has decided that it wants to take a path towards EU membership, which provides for compliance with our foreign policy".(ANSAmed).
