Annual Resolutions on Commission Reports on Serbia

Most relevant resolutions are those scrutinising the accession process. MEPs always underline that the implementation of reforms and policies remains a key indicator of the integration process and adopted laws are just a preparation to a real change.

The resolutions dedicate a lot of attention to the Kosovo-Serbia Dialogue. The Parliament closely links normalisation of relations between the two countries with their progress towards the EU membership.

The rule of law, functioning of the democratic institutions and human rights are in the focus, especially gender equality and situation of vulnerable groups, including minorities. The resolutions address the economic and political reforms, alignment with EU's positions in external relations (including relations with Russia) as well as on issues such as the migration crisis, energy, regional cooperation, good neighbourly relations as well as the investigation and prosecution of war crimes.

The European Parliament adopted a resolution on Serbia: the case of accused war criminal Šešelj.

The resolution adopted in plenary was tabled on behalf of the EPP, S&D, ECR, ALDE, Greens/EFA and EFDD groups.

Members recalled that Vojislav Šešelj, the president of the Serbian Radical Party, is indicted before the ICTY.

Today, after more than eleven years of detention, Šešelj is on provisional release on the grounds of the deterioration of his health. However, Šešelj has emphasised that he will not voluntarily return to the Tribunal when requested to do so. In his public statements, he repeatedly called for the creation of 'Greater Serbia', publicly stating claims on neighbouring countries, including EU Member State Croatia, and inciting hatred against non-Serb people.

Against this background, the European Parliament strongly condemned Šešelj's warmongering, incitement to hatred and encouragement of territorial claims and his attempts to derail Serbia from its European path.
