BELGRADE, May 14. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has expressed confidence constructive agreements will be reached to support Serbia’s presidency in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
"We have always been doing our best to fulfill agreements reached by our leaders - presidents and prime ministers," he said on Thursday upon arrival in Serbia. "We commended Serbian President Tomoslav Nikoloc’s participation in the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the victory in World War Two in Moscow and the participation of the Serbian military in the VE-Day Parade."
He said Russia knew that the anniversary of the victory was marked in Belgrade too. "I think on this background we are sure to reach constructive agreements on support of Serbia’s presidency in the OSCE, because one of the key tasks here is to promote documents that will confirm our commitment to peace, security and cooperation in entire Europe," the Russian minister said.
"I am confident that in this difficult situation on our continent the OSCE presidency of Serbia and personally of Ivica Dacic is a good guarantee that we will reach well-balanced results acceptable for all," Lavrov underscored.
The Russian foreign minister is on a visit to Serbia on May 14-15. He will have talks with his Serbian counterpart Ivica Dacic, who is OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, President Tomislav Nikolic and Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic on Friday.
