Serbian PM says probably won't attend Croatia Summit

Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday he "probably won't participate" in Croatia Summit in Dubrovnik on August 25-26 and that he did not expect substantial achievements from the event.

"I still haven't made the final decision because I don't see what we could do that would be substantial. But I'm always ready for talks," Vucic told reporters in Belgrade, adding that in future the Serbian government would refrain from comments on and responses to Croatian officials' statements. Some Croatian media said earlier in the day that Vucic planned to attend Croatia Summit.

Vucic went on to say that Serbia would keep its promise about support to the Croatian community in Serbia after he and Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic signed in June a Declaration on the improvement of relations and dealing with outstanding issues between the two countries.
