Serbia's existing legislation on access to information provides a good framework - at least in theory - for those seeking to hold government to account. In practice, of course, it is routinely undermined and ignored by authorities determined to undermine transparency.
Romania's Chief of Defence General Daniel Petrescu is attending, Monday to Wednesday in Sarajevo, the 14th edition of the Conference of Balkan chiefs of defence on defence co-operation.
The former MP, otherwise a member of Prime Minister Mitsotakis' New Democracy, based his assessment on talks with several ministers from the Greek government.
"History, faith and friendship bind us to Serbia. I believe in the government of Prime Minister Mitsotakis, which keeps its old friends and makes new ones," said Mayor of Katerini Koukidimos.
At a press conference in the Serbian presidency, Vucic said that at yesterday's meeting with senior US State Department official Matthew Palmer and EU special representative for dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina Miroslav Lajcak, he repeatedly reiterated that Serbia does not stand for a frozen conflict and doesn't want to " leave it to our children."
Media freedom across Europe needs to be supported, but the situation in the Balkans is particularly deplorable - independent media are at risk and will not survive on their own. These conclusions united the participants of the conference mottoed "Media Freedom in the Balkans", organized by EURACTIV Bulgaria.
The meeting started at 8 am, and the atmosphere from today's meeting was shared on the Instagram account "buducnostsrbijeav".
Vui talked with Szijjrt about further improvement of bilateral cooperation, Serbia's European path, the fight against the pandemic, transit capacities, gas supply and use, as well as the strategic partnership of the two countries in numerous areas.
