At the Slovak Embassy in Belgrade, Lajčák and representatives of the Serbian non-governmental sector will hold discussions on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Bratislava process that was one of the most significant initiatives that contributed to unification of the Serbian opposition against the repressive regime of Slobodan Milosevic.
