Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told Belgrade-based daily Vecernje Novosti the economic cooperation agreement that Serbia is set to sign with the Euro-Asian Economic Union is not political.
PM Brnabic is scheduled to travel to Russia in 10 days to sign the agreement.
“It does not run counter to the interests of the European Union, it is complementary because Serbia is a country determined to become an EU member which means that economically stronger Serbia is also in the interest of the EU. We can have free trade agreement with other countries and groups as long as we are not the EU member,” she underlined.
Brnabic also noted that Serbia’s place is in the EU because that is the country’s biggest export market.
