MEPs "welcome the recent improvement in relations between Belgrade and 
Pristina, as well as progress in adopting EU law, including the start of work 
on judiciary and fundamental rights and on justice, freedom and security, which 
are key to the accession process," the EP said on its website.

However, they urged the Serbian authorities to establish an adequate 
institutional framework for the absorption of pre-accession funds. 

According to the resolution, "Serbia should align its foreign policy with the 
EU’s, including its policy on Russia, ensure judicial independence in practice 
and revise its Constitution to guarantee the independence of key institutions 
and the protection of fundamental rights." 

"Serbia is on its path towards the EU. The Serbian government is tackling the 
challenges of creating jobs, enhancing competitiveness and boosting growth. 
Important economic reforms have been adopted to strengthen the business 
environment in the country and on normalizing relations with Kosovo," Serbia 
rapporteur David McAllister has been quoted as saying.
