Russia’s President Vladimir Putin will host his Serbia’s counterpart Aleksandar Vucic in Moscow on October 2, the Beta news agency reported.
The agency quoted its diplomatic sources as saying that the two presidents would not address the media following the talks.
Their last meeting in Russia was in May, while Putin visited Serbia in October 2014 when he attended the military parade marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Belgrade in the World War II.
Russia’s envoy to Serbia Alexandar Chepurin said that Vucic’s visit would happen at the significant time for the foreign policies of both Moscow and Belgrade.
“Our joint actions are exclusively positive. It aims at strengthening relations between our countries which are at the stage of economic improvement and national renaissance,” Chepurin said.
He added that the meeting confirmed the two presidents’ good personal relations and mutual respect.
“Our special relationship is not an obstacle to the development of the relations with third countries, i.e., Serbia’s with the European Union. Quite the opposite,” Chepurin said.
