BERLIN  – President of the German Bundestag Norbert Lammert is to pay a visit to Belgrade on Wednesday to meet with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić and speak in the Serbian parliament, several sources have confirmed to Tanjug.
The two-day visit has not as yet been officially announced and there is no specific information on the agenda of the upcoming discussions in Belgrade.

However, without a doubt, they will focus on bilateral, regional and European affairs.

This will be President Vucic’s first official meeting with the Bundestag president.

Lammert is coming to Belgrade at a politically significant time – a month before the July 12 Western Balkans summit in Trieste, to be held as part of the Berlin Process, and just weeks after German FM Sigmar Gabriel outlined a new strategy – a “Marshall Plan” for the region – late last month.
