(ANSAMed) - BELGRADE, JULY 16 - Serbia wants to become an EU member and will do everything possible to achieve that end, President Tomislav Nikolic told Eduard Kukan, chair of the EU Delegation for Relations with the Balkan nations today. Serbia will reform its justice system, step up its fight against corruption and organized crime, and clarify its privatization procedures, and not only because Europe demands it, but because it is in Serbia's interests, Nikolic said. Serbia does not need to await EU acceptance before bringing itself up to European standards, Nikolic said. Kukan expressed his support for Serbia's request for a starting date for EU entry negotiations, the Serbian presidency said in a note.
