MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th April, 2019) Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Wednesday that he expected Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to pay a visit to the Serbian capital before the end of this year.

"We have a tradition to meet at least twice a year, once in Serbia, once in Russia. And after this visit to Moscow, I look forward to his [Lavrov's] visit to Belgrade before the year-end," Dacic said.

Dacic is visiting Russia on the 140th anniversary of the opening of Serbia's first embassy in St. Petersburg in 1879. The diplomatic relations between the two countries were established in 1838.

The ties between Russia and Serbia are developing at a good pace. Russian President Vladimir Putin paid an official visit to Belgrade on January 17. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic visited Russia twice last year and took part in the Immortal Regiment march on the Red Square in Moscow.
