MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. Presidents of Russia and Serbia Vladimir Putin and Tomislav Nikolic have discussed during their meeting in the Kremlin on Thursday the bilateral relations, in particular, the forthcoming visit of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to Belgrade.
"I hope we will work in accordance with a modern, positive agenda," the Russian leader said opening talks with his Serbian counterpart. "In this connection I would like to recall the Serbian prime minister’s visit to Russia last fall and the Russian prime minister’s trip to Serbia that is planned, hopefully, in the near future," Putin said.
