However, the FPO vice-president will be in Belgrade in his role as a high-ranking Austrian parliamentary official, and will meet with Serbian National Assembly President Maja Gojkovic.
Hoferwill also be received by Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic, Tanjug reported on Monday, citing his spokesperson.
According to the announcement, Hofer's meetings in Belgrade will focus on bilateral relations, the migrant crisis, and "European integration, i.e., Serbia's path toward the EU."
Hofer and his party have in the past supported Serbia's EU membership bid, demanding at the same time the country's equal treatment in the accession process, "without blackmailing it with Kosovo."
Hofer, as well as FPO leader Heinz-Christian Strache, have also on several occasions criticized the unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo, made in early 2008 by the province's ethnic Albanians.
