The Head of the Parliamentary Friendship Group with Armenia Aleksandar Cotric met today, at the National Assembly House, with Armenian Ambassador to Serbia Ashot Hovakimyan.
Cotric said that the two countries have recently worked intensively on strengthening and deepening the historically friendly relations, resulting in a reciprocal abolishment of visas.
