President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy will visit Belgrade on July 6.
According to his deputy spokesman Jesus Carmona, Rompuy will begin his mini tour of the Balkans on Monday, which will include his visit to Slovenia on July 5, and to Croatia, Belgrade and Priština on July 6.
Carmona did not reveal any other details regarding Rompuy’s visit to the region.
This will be the first Rompuy’s visit to Belgrade since he assumed office in accordance with the Lisbon Treaty, which took effect on December 1, 2009.
Rompuy was planned to visit the Western Balkans in May, but the visit, whose aim was to show to all regional countries that they have a European perspective, was postponed.
