Romania to debate ratification of SAA with Serbia

BUCHAREST -- Romanian Foreign Affairs Committee President Titus Corlatean will urge support of ratification of the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) with Serbia.
Corlatean said he would also propose to the committee to seek from the Romanian government to take up an active role in the negotiations on different chapters concerning Serbia as a candidate country so that the government in Bucharest could ensure that Serbia met the relevant criteria before becoming a member of the EU.
At the end of the discussion on Serbia's SAP and the situation regarding the Romanian community in that country, Corlatean reiterated Romania's support to Serbia's European path, Romania's news agency Agerpres said.

Romanian Foreign Minister Cristian Diaconescu said that Romania would also establish a monitoring mechanism that would watch closely the situation concerning Romanians who lived outside their native country.

The SAP with Serbia yet remains to be ratified by Romania, Belgium and Lithuania.
