Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic is probably going to come for an official visit to Belgrade in the autumn, and the exact date should be agreed between the heads of state’s cabinets in Belgrade and Zagreb respectively – the Vecernje Novosti daily finds out.

One precondition for the visit is making a step forward in resolving the issue of the missing persons from the civil war.  Grabar Kitarovic welcomed the information that President Vucic intends to appoint a commissioner to work on this issue.

The Croatian President does not want the visit to be strictly protocol-controlled and is eager to discuss concrete issues and solve problems from the past. Also, an economic forum is being put together in order for Croatian business people and their Serbian counterparts.

Russian President, Vladimir Putin is also planning to visit Serbia, on or around 1st November.

Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic has confirmed that the Russian President, Vladimir Putin accepted an invitation to visit Belgrade, marking 100 years since the victory in World War I.

He added that Putin’s visit was a great honour for Serbia and the validation of the traditional friendly Serbian-Russian relationship.

The Russian Ambassador to Serbia, Alexander Chepurin confirmed on Friday that the Russian President would visit Serbia this autumn.

Several agreements are expected to be signed during the Putin visit that would bolster the cooperation between the two countries, the statement said.
