    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Belgrade offers to host a meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump in Belgrade, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic told Sputnik.

    "Serbia as a militarily neutral state has a needed potential in terms of foreign policy capabilities to receive presidents of Russia and the United States," the minister said.

    On Tuesday, Putin and Trump agreed in a phone conversation that there was a need for a meeting to discuss the issues on the bilateral agenda.

    In October and November 2017, Belgrade served as a neutral platform for Russian-US talks, as Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov and US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker discussed the situation in Ukraine there.
