WASHINGTON -- Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić will on Wednesday start his official visit to Washington, during which he will have a series of meetings.
Dačić will meet with representatives of the U.S. administration and security sector and attend the traditional Prayer Breakfast, hosted by the U.S. president.
Tanjug has learnt in Washington that the official meetings Dačić is to have will be focused on U.S.'s support to the Serbian government's efforts in talks with Priština.
The Serbian prime minister will Wednesday confer with Congressmen Robert Aderholt, Eliot Engel, Dana Rohrabacher and Ted Poe, who is the chairman of the Serbian caucus in the Congress.
Later in the day, the prime minister will meet with Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Robert Mueller.
Meetings at the Department of State are scheduled for the second day of the visit, when Dačić will meet with United States Deputy Secretary of State William Burns.
