Pahor congratulates Vučić on re-election

Ljubljana – President Borut Pahor talked with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vučić on the phone on Monday, congratulating him on his re-election as president in Sunday’s election.

In a press release reporting on the phone call, Pahor’s office said the pair of presidents had a friendly and fairly long conversation.

Pahor wished Vučić success in performing his duties and they both noted the importance of mutual trust and a continuation of the excellent relationship between the two countries, the release said.

It added that Pahor and Vučić were keen to hold an informal meeting soon.

As yet unofficial results show that Vučić won almost 60% of the vote in Sunday’s presidential election, which means he secured an outright victory in the first run. His party won the parliamentary election.
