Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias to visit Serbia, FYROM and Kosovo

Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias is departing Tuesday for a trip to Serbia, FYROM and Kosovo.

His first port of call is Serbia, where he will meet on Wednesday with Serbian Vice President and Foreign Minister Ivitsa Dacic and President Alexandar Voucic.

The two foreign ministers will discuss bilateral ties between the two countries and the European prospects of the western Balkans ahead of May’s EU-Western Balkans summit in Sofia.

Kotzias will then visit Lake Ohrid where he will meet with his FYROM counterpart Nikola Dimitrov. He will resume talks that had been left off from their meeting in Vienna on March 30. The two will also discuss the future cooperation between the two nations on the condition that the name dispute is settled.

The Greek foreign minister will then travel to Pristina, where he will meet with Kosovo President Hashim Thaci.
