An informal document of the European Commission on the situation in Chapters 23 and 24 in negotiations with Serbia, the so-called “non-paper”, has been published on the website of the Serbian Ministry of European Integration.

In addition, the report adds that concerns continue to cause political and economic influence on the media. Read more here.
