According to Serbian newspaper Blic, Serbia has changed its stance on the Nobel ceremony. The country previously was among the 19 countries that said they would not attend the Nobel concert. Now it has been decided that ombudsman Sasa Jankovic will attend the ceremony as special representative of Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic. This reduces the tally of countries not to attend down to 18.
The decision has been made after the European Union put heavy pressure on Serbia.
