The European Union urged Serbia today to make clear it saw its future with Europe and laid out incentives on visas, education and transport to try to boost the bloc's image in the Balkans.This reminds me of abusive husbands to hit their wifes and then buy them flowers afterwards. How many E.U. states would be happy for some foreign power (say China) to come along, slice a part of their country off, declare it independent and then demand they be happy about it? Serbia should remember abusive boyfriends don't change and stick with Russia.
But the row with Belgrade over Kosovo has raised concerns that Serbia could shun the EU and turn towards Russia in future.
