Russia's Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov will pay a visit to Serbia on October 28-29, where he will meet President Aleksandar Vucic and the state leadership, President's Secretary-General Nikola Selakovic confirmed.

Speaking to TV Prva, Selakovic denied allegations about disturbances in Belgrade-Moscow relations, stressing that this visit would not happen if those relations have deteriorated.

He also said Vucic talked to Russian President Vladimir Putin on two occasions but that Putin is not likely to pay a visit due to the health crisis caused by the coronavirus.

“I am convinced Putin will use the first opportunity to come,” he added.
