Slovakia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák will visit Serbia today, May 24, after opposition Serbian Progression Party leader Tomislav Nikolic won the country’s presidential election held last weekend.

Lajčák will travel to Serbia also on behalf of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, as Lajčák knows a number of Serbian politicians from his earlier post in Bosnia.

The minister is set to meet representatives of the main political parties.

"I bear some messages from Catherine Ashton as well as from [European Commission chairman] Jose Manuel Barroso. And Brussels wants to become familiar with the information I'm to obtain there, too," Lajčák told the TASR newswire on May 23.

TASR wrote that the Serbian election results cannot be considered surprising, as polls predicted an even clash among the two main candidates.
