Meanwhile, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic is planning to visit Kosovo on Saturday following the recent murder of prominent Kosovar Serb politician Oliver Ivanovic, media reported.
Following the murder, Vucic said that Belgrade had demanded the possibility to participate in the investigation into the incident.
Kosovo unilaterally declared its independence from Serbia in 2008, which was recognized by over 100 UN member states, but not Serbia, Russia, Spain, India and China among others.
Oliver Ivanovic faced retrial on charges of ordering crimes against the civilians in the Kosovo War in the 1990s. After conviction in 2016, the politician pleaded not guilty, claiming that his case was politically motivated.
