The Serbian Parliament approved greater autonomy for Vojvodina on Monday, November 30, a move that has been harshly criticised by Serbian nationalists who fear that it will lead to secession, as was the case with Kosovo. The new legislation is part of reforms necessary for Serbia to become a member of the EU. Gašparovič also met with representatives of the autonomous Vojvodina region, including Executive Board Chairman Bojan Pajtic and mayor of Novy Sad Igor Pavlicic. TASR
