The international war crimes tribunal's chief prosecutor is due to visit Serbia to gauge the country's progress hunting for its two remaining war fugitives.
Serge Brammertz will spend two days in Belgrade before submitting a report to the UN Security Council.
The two remaining wanted men are Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladic and Goran Hadzic who is wanted for war crimes in Croatia.
Brammertz’s comments on how Serbia is co-operating with the tribunal will be key to its ambitions for EU membership, the BBC reported.
His visit comes a day after ex-Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic appeared for the first time in the court.
Karadzic, arrested in Belgrade in 2008, after nearly 13 years on the run, has been boycotting his trial.
He says he has had insufficient time to study the prosecution documents and prepare his defence, despite being indicted in 1995.
