BELGRADE, March 27. /TASS/. The upcoming talks between Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday are extremely important for Serbia, the country’s premier told the Radio Television of Serbia public broadcaster.
"The meeting with the Russian president is of exceptional political, economic and other significance for Serbia. Frequent meetings with the Russian leaders show that we have good relations and are cultivating them. We try to find new models, new ways, a new arrangement to establish advanced forms of cooperation," said Vucic for whom Monday’s meeting with the Russian leader will be his tenth one.
The prime minister reiterated that "Serbia will not impose sanctions on Russia even though it remains the last such country in Europe." On the other hand, Belgrade "has embarked on the European path," he noted, but preserves its military neutrality.
Deepening bilateral economic partnership, cooperation in machine building and military-technical cooperation are expected to top the agenda of the Putin-Vucic meeting.
According to the press service of the Serbian Cabinet, Vucic also plans to discuss ways of intensifying cooperation between Serbia and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). Besides, the two parties will focus on the situation in the Balkans which experienced some flare-ups recently.
