International Relations: Sweden says EU still open to deal with Serbia

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, has said that dialogue between the European Union and Serbia is important and that the bloc's political cooperation agreement with Serbia stays open.

He made the statement during his visit with his Romanian counterpart Adrian Cioroianu.

"It would be a negative fact for Serbia to sink down in international isolation or to isolate itself," Bildt, adding that dialogue should continue despite the standoff over Kosovo.
