BRUSSELS (AP) – Serbia-Montenegro must accelerate judicial reforms,
tackle widespread corruption and avoid creating new barriers between the
two republics if it wants to move closer to European Union membership,
the European Commission said yesterday. In a report on the country’s

agreement – an initial step toward eventual membership – the Commission
also said the country has made significant headway in its cooperation
with the UN war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, but urged it
to continue “to achieve full cooperation.” In a report on Kosovo, the
Commission said minority rights – particularly those of Serbs and
Gypsies, or Roma – must be improved. It also said a lack of respect for
the rule of law and problems of organized crime and widespread
corruption are of great concern.
