MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic is expected to pay a visit to Russia in late October to discuss issues of economic cooperation, Serbian Ambassador to Russian Slavenko Terzic told TASS on Friday.
"A visit to Moscow by the Serbian prime minister is planned for later October. It might take place on October 28-29," he said. "The talks with the Russian leaders will focus on issues of bilateral economic cooperation."
During the Serbian defence minister’s visit to Russia in August 2015, the sides negotiated possible sales of two Russian-made Mi-17B-5 helicopters. The rotorcrafts are to be equipped with VK-2500 engines of the Russian manufacture. The sides have already signed a preliminary agreement. The Serbian side has made an advance payment and the contract is expected to be signed during Vucic’s visit to Moscow.
