Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic will travel to New York these days to attend the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, which will focus on climate change. The Serbian President’s agenda will also include meetings to resolve the Kosovo issue “at the lowest possible sacrifice” for Serbia.
On his arrival in New York, President Vucic will meet the German Chancellor Angela Merkel on her own initiative. Vucic said he was surprised and very grateful that the German Chancellor, who will be in the United States for a day and a half, had requested to meet him.
Announcing further bilateral meetings in New York, Vucic said that those talks would be difficult because the issue of Kosovo would be the dominant theme.
“I will also have a meeting with the Russian Minister Sergei Lavrov. I don’t know if I’m going to go on Sunday or Monday, because Trump is planning some meetings at that time. The Albanian officials will also be there and probably boast they had met with Trump even if that would not be true. I don’t know if I should go too and then claim that we talked (with Trump) for hours when, in all actuality, we were just going to take some pictures with him and chat for a minute or so,” Vucic added.
During his visit to New York, the President of Serbia is also due to meet the Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, and the President of Guatemala Jimmy Morales, as well as the President of the World Economic Forum, Borge Brende.
His itinerary also includes a meeting with the Deputy Interim Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs at the State Department, Philip Reeker, and the political director of the FCO, Richard Moore.
