In connection with this, they announced that a session of the Mixed Committee for cooperation between the two countries would be held soon.
Vucic is quoted as saying that Serbia's stability, as well as peace and cooperation in the region, represent "the basis of the state policy" - but that "nothing must jeopardize the sovereignty and independence of our country."
Vucic also "clearly and unequivocally confirmed that Serbia will remain a militarily neutral country," the press release said.
