The Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia Maja Gojkovic met today with the Chairman of the German Bundestag’s Committee on the Affairs of the European Union Gunther Krichbaum, currently in visit to Serbia.
Gojkovic and Krichbaum also discussed Serbia’s Euro-integration and agreed that bilateral issues have no place within the European processes.
Krichbaum said he was optimistic that Europe would reach a consensus as regards the opening of chapters 23 and 24 and stressed that Germany will contribute to finding a compromise and an adequate solution.
Gojkovic briefed Krichbaum on the National Assembly’s role in the negotiation process, adding that the Assembly’s Committee in charge of European integration had recently discussed the Government’s negotiating position on Chapter 23.
