President Boris Tadić this Tuesday in Stockholm, submitted Serbia's application requesting that the country be granted EU candidate status.
Tadić said yesterday that he believed that Serbia's application would come at the best possible moment, although the county is yet to fulfil the requirements for the ratification of the "previous" step – the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA).
EU hopes that Serbia´s application will be a boost for the whole region. Albania and Montenegro have already handed in their applications and when the Bosnienserbs understand how isolated they are, also Bosnia will consider the road to EU.
Serbia can be a full member earliest by 2014.
