Milos Zeman, the President of Czech Republic will visit Serbia next month accompanied by an economic delegation and plans to organise the summit of the Visegrad Group and some Western Balkans leaders in Prague in October, the Beta news agency has reported on Monday.

The visit to Serbia from September 10 to 12 is reported to have primarily an economic character.

The gathering of Serbia’s Slovenia’s and Croatia’s leaders is planned during Czech Chairmanship over the Visegrad Group, known also as V4, in October in Prague.

Zeman, considered a populist, invited presidents  Aleksandar Vucic, Borut Pahor and Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic, according to his foreign policy advisor.

The main topic will be the relations between the European Union and Western Balkans and the bloc’s progress after last May’s elections for the European Parliament.

V4 (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) are all members of the EU and NATO founded to strengthen the military, cultural, economic and energy cooperation among themselves.

They also advocate a stronger voice for the EU new members but have been at odds with the bloc over their strong anti-migrant policy.
