She added that Ashton would meet with top Serbian officials.
The EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy is expected to discuss future steps on Serbia's road to the EU, the dialogue between Belgrade and Priština held under the auspices of the EU in Brussels, and regional cooperation.
After Belgrade, Ashton will visit Priština on May 27, Brussels has announced.
Ashton's visit comes only one week after European Commission (EC) President Jose Manuel Barroso and EU Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fule visited Belgrade and Priština.
Ashton visited Belgrade in February last year, when she expressed satisfaction with Serbia's considerable progress in EU integration and the conviction that Serbia is firmly committed to conducting the reforms needed for EU accession.
