He emphasized that the relations between Serbia and Croatia were of crucial importance to the regional stability and that incidents such as the one during the visit of the Members of the Croatian Parliament to the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia should not be heeded. He said that during his recent visit to Zagreb President Vucic was also exposed to even more offensive acts but still did not cut short his visit which was surely good since it invigorated the dialogue between the two neighboring countries.

The collocutors agreed that good relations between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Croatia were of particular importance to the lasting stability of the Western Balkans.
