    (ANSAmed) - ROME, OCTOBER 15 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta on Tuesday told a press conference that Serbia's EU membership is a 'great priority'. Letta was speaking after an Italian-Serbian summit in Ancona, in the central Marche region.

    'We want Serbia to become the 29th EU star', said Letta, recalling that 'Italy worked hard for Belgrade's adhesion process to the European Union'.

    Serbian Premier Ivica Dacic remarked that Serbia wants 'to be the union's 29th member' and thanked Italy 'for the great support' provided as his country is pursuing this objective.

    Letta recalled that Italy 'worked with great commitment at the European council at the end of June' and when 'a few small glitches were halting a positive evolution of the final document on the start of Serbia's adhesion talks in the EU, Italy worked with the greatest commitment'.

    'We were able to get a green light from the EU council at the end of June but now all the necessary steps must be made by the EU and Serbia', he said. (ANSAmed)
