Following the meeting, President Vučić pointed out that he was very grateful to President Putin for the attention he paid to our country, and that relations between our two countries were very close.
“We had a very cordial and very good conversation, and I am quite satisfied with its content. We discussed all the key issues, political – especially the ones related to Kosovo and Metohija – but also the entire regional situation and relations in the world. In addition to the political ties – which are very close between our two countries – I received specific advice, but also important analyses from President Putin “, Vučić said and underlined that President Putin confirmed his arrival in Serbia in October for the opening of Saint Sava Temple which speaks of our good relations.

“Our economic cooperation is sound; in the first three months, despite the coronavirus, we had an increase in our external trade of seven per cent year-on-year, which is virtually unimaginable. We also talked about what else we can do within our economic cooperation and a large project carried out by Russian railways in our country, but also about new opportunities for cooperation in the future,” said the President.
He added that they also discussed military-technical cooperation between the two countries, as well as the construction of the pipeline and timeframe of the first gas flow through Serbia.
The importance of Tuesday’s talks between Putin and Vucic was highlighted during Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s visit to Belgrade last week.
Vučić will also participate in the Victory Parade in Moscow commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. The Serbian Army will also take part in the parade.
Vučić’s first international visit on the second day following general elections was in Moscow. This week he will also visit Brussels, where he will meet with the highest EU officials, and then the White House in Washington, where he will sit in talks with Kosovo.
