GENEVA - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Friday in Geneva that removing hurdles to free movement of goods, capital, services and people in the region was very important for Serbia and that he would like to see Pristina, Podgorica and Sarajevo in an initiative connecting the six Western Balkan economies.

Speaking to reporters after a World Economic Forum (WEF) conference on the Western Balkans, Vucic said he expected to see many obstacles to the initiative.

"That is why I am very thankful to the US, the WEF, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and other institutions that have backed that project very openly," he said.

"For us, it is very important and we want to see Pristina, Podgorica and Sarajevo in that initiative, but the decision is up to them," he said.
