Survey: Half of the people in Serbia in favour of the country’s EU accession

Half of the Serbian citizens support their country’s entry into the European Union. Those who oppose the EU accession are mostly people between 18 and 29 years of age or over 60 years of age.

These are the results of a survey conducted under the auspices of the international conference “NATO Week in Belgrade – This is Us”.

“Three-quarters of Serbian citizens do not support NATO membership,” said Ivo Colovic from the Center for Free Elections and Democracy (CeSID). According to Colovic, out of a sample of 800 citizens, only 14% have a positive attitude towards cooperation with the Atlantic Alliance.

Since one-third of the population has only primary school education, Colovic said that they should be educated to understand the importance of a partnership with NATO.

The Assistant Secretary-General of the Alliance, Carmen Romero, added that Serbia is important for NATO and that “Belgrade and the Alliance want the Western Balkans to be safe”.
