Am I the only one that gets the feeling that Serbia's EU membership attempt is going to look a lot like Turkeys, lots of promises but no real movement. It wouldn't surprise me if it takes 30 years or so. Primarily because the EU is so divided. There are countries like the UK, which have recognised Kosovo and have no plans to backtrack, and countries like Spain which said they never will, primarily due to their own internal issues in the Basque region. If I remember correctly, all 27 members would have to agree on Serbia's entry, and I can't see that occuring. I feel it will be very much like Turkey and the Cyprus issue, which might be solved by an eventual unification of Cyprus, but until that issue is resolved Turkey will have trouble joining. Same situation here, except I can't see the Serbs and Albanians agreeing on a mutually acceptable solution (but you never know, the EU's soft power might well be that strong).Since his election in 2004, Tadic has made EU membership a priority. But Serbia has been at odds with many EU members for insisting that Kosovo remain part of Serbia.
