"Are these westerners lying?"

European ministers meeting in Luxemburg announced that the Balkan country Montenegro will begin negotiating its entry into the EU after the joint police task force Europol looks into the country's efforts to tackle organised crime.

Sweden's foreign minister, Carl Bildt, was among those who were hesitant that the small Mediterranean state enter the EU.

But Sweden put its weight behind the demand that Europol investigate what still needs to be done to crack down on criminal networks there.

The Europol report is expected by the autumn, reports the news agency TT.
