However, Belgrade's recognition of the former Serbian province is a prerequisite for Serbia's entry into the EU. Behind the scenes, the EU in particular is pressing for the dispute to be resolved and is pumping billions into the region. All Western Balkan countries are considered candidates for EU membership.
