December 7 (SeeNews) - Serbia's Ministry of European Integration said on Thursday the European Commission (EC) plans to open two more chapters in the membership negotiations of the country on December 11.
Serbia will start talks on Chapter 6 - Company Law, and Chapter 30 - External Relations, the ministry said in a statement.
Estonia, as the country holding the rotating EU presidency, has scheduled an intergovernmental conference to open the negotiations with Serbia on those chapters on December 11 in Brussels.
Serbia is not satisfied with the decision as the government was ready to open three chapters in the accession talks, European integration minister Jadranka Joksimovic said in the statement.
"I want to believe that this is not a political signal for slowing Serbia on the European path, because it would be in contradiction with all that we have talked about, with announcements from the European Commission and the member states," Joksimovic added.
Serbia has so far started talks on 10 of the 35 chapters of EU law and has closed negotiations on two - Chapter 25 - Science & Research and Chapter 26 - Education & Culture.
