Serbia to start 'historic' EU entry talks in January

BRUSSELS--Serbia on Tuesday won the European Union's long-sought blessing to kick off talks on joining the bloc in January, in recognition of its efforts in normalizing ties with Kosovo.

European affairs ministers set the January 21 date after having “acknowledged reform and normalization efforts” by the Balkan nation, the bloc's Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele said.

Serbia hopes to become the 29th member of the bloc, following in the footsteps of neighbor Croatia, the newest EU member who joined in July. Also among the six nations once part of the former Yugoslavia, Slovenia joined the EU in 2004.
