GENEVA - Serbia is on the European path but it wants a clear answer from the EU as to whether the union wants it as a member or not, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said in Geneva Friday.

"We need to know - that is what I have been asking many people in the EU. And, if we solve our problems with Pristina, when can we count on becoming an EU member state? In 2025, or some other year? We have received no answers," Vucic told reporters after a conference on strategic dialogue on the Western Balkans, organised by the World Economic Forum.

He added he was hoping to get certain answers at the EU's Zagreb summit in 2020 and that he also expected to see some political decisions within the EU, rather than just a technical, bureaucratic approach.

"We know a lot of work is still ahead of us - from rule of law to economic reforms... We are ready to do it," he said.
