Lavrov’s Serbia visit cancelled due to flight ban

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the terms of gas supply arrangements and achieved an agreement in principle, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in an interview with Bosnian Serb entity TV on Sunday.
Lavrov noted that the arrangement should be worked out among the parties concerned.
Lavrov also stated that he will discuss all subjects of concern to Serbia with Vucic during his travel to Serbia on June 6-7.
Lavrov had to meet with Vucic and other government officials but Russia’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that his flight was cancelled because the countries bordering Serbia have closed their airspace to Minister Sergey Lavrov’s aircraft.
“The countries bordering Serbia have closed the only air route to the aircraft of Sergey Lavrov who was to depart for Serbia. The Russian delegation was scheduled to hold talks in Belgrade, while the EU and NATO member-countries have closed their airspace,” Zakharova said in an on-air broadcast of Italy’s La7 television channel late on Sunday.
