In the phone conversation that lasted longer than half an hour the two presidents also touched on the topic of Kosovo and Metohija and other important issues.
Putin and Vucic also discussed regional issues, and dedicated most of the time to the question of Kosovo and Metohija, especially to what is happening on the international political scene concerning this issue.
Vucic once again thanked Putin for Russia's active support to the state and national interests of Serbia, based on the principles of international law and justice.
As stated, Putin said that he will talk about it in private with Vucic next week in Moscow, during the celebration of victory over fascism and stressed that Russia will support Serbia when it comes to Kosovo and Metohija and that it is clear that no decision can be made without the United Nations Security Council.
Putin in Serbia
The Russian president confirmed that he will visit Serbia again to attend the central state ceremony of the consecration of the temple of Saint Sava in Belgrade, and pointed out that Russia would help the interests of Serbia and protect the interests of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
President Vucic stated that he will be honored to host President Putin again, especially on that solemn occasion as Russia has invaluably contributed to the completion of the largest Orthodox church in Serbia, making it one of the symbols of closeness between the two countries and two nations.
During the conversation, Vucic thanked Putin for the invitation to attend the Victory Parade in Moscow on June 24, stressing that it was a great honor for him to participate in the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the victory over fascism as he is proud of the fact that the Serbian and Russian people stood on the same freedom-loving side in the Second World War.
Preserving memory of glorious history
"That is why there is not a more important duty than preserving the memory of the glorious history and the truth about the struggle that brought freedom and peace," said Vucic.
At the end of the call, Vucic said that he was looking forward to the visit of the head of Russian diplomacy, Sergei Lavrov, to Belgrade this week.
"The fact that he chose our country for his first foreign visit after the forced break caused by the coronavirus pandemic, represents for us yet another confirmation of the closest friendly relations and extraordinary strategic partnership," Vucic emphasized.
The president of Serbia expressed confidence that he will have the opportunity to discuss in detail with Minister Lavrov the issues of Serbian-Russian political and economic cooperation, as well as the situation in the Balkans and current international developments.
