Serbia Press Review - November 14, 2012

Belgrade “has nothing to lose” in talks with Pristina. Fiscal Council: About 30,000 employees in public sector surplus labour. Mrkic criticize Serbia's diplomats across the world.

Belgrade

VECERNJE NOVOSTI

Serbia’s Deputy Prime Minister Rasim Ljajic has said that Belgrade has nothing to lose in the talks with Pristina and that it can only benefit from them.

BLIC

Budget proposal and fiscal strategy define goals of economic development of Serbia well but the necessary reforms have not been outlined precisely. The budget should be unsustainable if wages in public sector and pensions are not kept under control next year. Also from twenty to thirty thousand employees are surplus labour. These are the main conclusions by the Fiscal Council.

DANAS

Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic sent a letter to all Serbian embassies and consulates criticizing "inaction, fall of motivation" and even lack of promotion of new Serbian leadership.

Balkan Insight has not verified the reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
