Cooperation between the National Assembly and the European Parliament
Pursuant to SAA, Article 12, the political dialogue at parliamentary level is carried out in the framework of Stabilisation and Association Parliamentary Committee consisting of Members of the National Assembly and the European Parliament respectively. This joint National Assembly and the European Parliament committee is composed of equal number of members of the National Assembly and the European Parliament, and it meets at least twice a year. Before the end of each meeting and the debate on the issues on the agenda, a Declaration and Recommendations are adopted, which are sent to the Council for Stabilisation and Association, as well as to the official institutions of the Republic of Serbia and the European Union.
Apart from the annual Progress Report on Serbia adopted by the European Commission, the European Parliament adopts the report in the form of a Resolution with a text proposed by the European Parliament Rapporteur for Serbia. The European Parliament resolutions are not of mandatory nature, but serve as important political guidelines for countries in European integration process and for the EU member states. There is a common practice that European Parliament rapporteur would visit the Republic of Serbia at least once a year in order to prepare the European Parliament resolution.
