The summit will bring together Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić, and his Croatian, Montenegrin, and Albanian counterparts Ivo Josipović, Filip Vujanović, and Bujar Nishani.

Presidents or prime ministers of Romania, Turkey, Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Bulgaria will also attend. An invitation was also sent to Greece, "but a reply is yet to be given," Tanjug is reporting.

"Kosovo did not receive an invitation," the news agency also said, and added that this was "in keeping with the rules of the summit of South Eastern Europe which state that all participants should approve the invitation of a new member."

However, there has been "no such approval for Kosovo."

Special guests of the summit will be President of the United Nations General Assembly Vuk Jeremić, UNESCO General Director Irina Bokova, and others.

120 Macedonian and over 30 foreign reporters will cover the event.
