Romania and Serbia strive to get, in terms of economic relations, at the same “excellent level” of the political relations, but this target is “very hard to achieve,” Ambassador of Serbia to Romania and the Republic of Moldova Branko Brankovic said in an interview to a Romanian news agency.
“The economic relations are good, but there is always room for improvement. We are striving to bring the economic relations at the level of the political ones between our countries. (…) It’s a very hard target to achieve. It’s not that we don’t want it, but the level of political relations is so high that we don’t know what we can do – Serbia and Romania as well – to get there with the economic relations,” the diplomat stated.
In the interview, the official talks about the prospect of Serbia’s accession to the European Union, the recent tensions in Kosovo and his country’s relationship with the North Atlantic Alliance.
“We won’t be a NATO member. We have a very comfortable majority in the country in terms of joining the EU. At the same time, we have a much more comfortable majority that does not want us to be part of the NATO. The wounds are still fresh,” the diplomat pointed out.
