The Kremlin has no intention to interfere in the upcoming elections in Serbia, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, Russian Tass agency reported.

The Kremlin spokesman thus commented on a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic scheduled for March 27.

Vucic is paying a visit to Russia a week before the Serbian presidential elections on April 2. The Serbian premier is the main contender for the post of the head of the Serbian state.

"No doubt, there can be no talk that the Kremlin interfered in any electoral processes," Peskov told journalists.

"Russia and Serbia have a special nature of mutual relations and it determines a high pace of maintaining a political dialog at the highest level," he said.
