    The European Union and Serbia signed Tuesday a Stabilisation and Association Agreement. The Agreement was adopted during the session of the General Affairs and External Relations Council.

    The Cypriot Foreign Minister, Marcos Kyprianou, speaking during the session, welcomed the signing of the Agreement. In addition, he pointed out that Cyprus was always supporting the adoption of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement with Serbia as soon as possible. At the same time, Kyprianou expressed hope that Serbia will become an EU candidate country soon.

    At the beginning of the meeting, the Council examined the situation in Zimbabwe. In the conclusions of todays Council meeting, the EU Foreign Ministers judged that it was unacceptable and unjustifiable not to have declared the results of the presidential elections four weeks after the ballot. The EU therefore calls for the election results to be announced immediately, as delay creates suspicion as to the credibility of the election process. Speaking on that issue, the Cypriot Foreign Minister stressed that despite the results have not yet been declared, the elections as such, consist a positive step towards the democratization of the country.

    Zimbabwe, Kyprianou concluded, is in a very difficult road to democracy, and EU should offer its help.
