Summary/Abstract: On June 28 the European Council did not decide on the exact date for the beginning of accession negotiations between Serbia and EU. As expected, Germany had the upper hand: the exact date had to wait until concrete results of the Brussels Agreement were evaluated. Berlin stuck to its principled stance – Serbia should respect not only what it had obliged itself to but also its own signature. The Council made a decision encouraging Serbia with, if not steely, than sufficient guarantee that negotiation would begin in foreseeable future.
