EU integration no longer exists and the Brussels Agreement is dead

Summary of Disinformation

Messages that Serbia received from the West clearly show that EU integration does not exist anymore. Also, it is clear that the Brussels Agreement is dead.

 

 

 

 

Disproof

There is no evidence provided for these claims and they are not the official position of the Serbian government as confirmed by Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić who underlined as well that Mr Popović was neither in charge of the Brussels Agreement and its assessments nor European integration.

The Government of the Republic of Serbia has set European integration as one of the most important foreign policy objectives. See here for more information about EU-Serbian relations.

The EU is by far the biggest donor to Serbia with more than €3.6 billion (3.688) in grants provided over the past 18 years in all fields, ranging from rule of law, public administration reform, social development, environment and agriculture. The financial assistance is provided through the EU’s Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA) which aims to help Serbia to prepare for assuming and effectively implementing obligations of its future membership in the EU. Since 2000, the EU has implemented projects regarding Serbia’s transport infrastructure, health care, air and water quality, solid waste treatment, justice and public administration reform to deliver better services to citizens.

The President of Serbia and the President of Kosovo agreed to continue the political dialogue within the Brussels Agreement in September 2018. A panel attended by the two Presidents during the GLOBSEC forum last June also concluded that the agreement is in the interest of both sides.
