BELGRADE (Serbia), August 24 (SeeNews) - Serbia's Foreign Ministry has said the ambassador to Macedonia will return to Skopje on August 31 after Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic and Macedonian prime minister Zoran Zaev agreed to repair the relations between the two countries through dialogue.

The embassy staff will start returning to Skopje on Thursday, while ambassador Dusanka Divjak-Tomic will meet Zaev on September 1, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. 

Serbia's foreign minister Ivica Dacic will hold a meeting with his Macedonian counterpart Nikola Dimitrov on Friday following a phone conversation on Wednesday, the ministry added.

Serbia's president Aleksandar Vucic and Macedonian prime minister Zoran Zaev agreed on Wednesday to settle all possible disagreements between Belgrade and Skopje through dialogue, cooling tensions between the two countries.

Earlier this week, Serbia's government said it has called back the entire staff of the country's embassy in Skopje after reports that the Macedonian government plans to vote in support of Kosovo's membership of the UN cultural agency UNESCO.

Serbian media quoted Zaev as saying on Tuesday that his government has never given instructions to carry out any counter-intelligence activities against or on behalf of any neighbouring country, including Serbia.

Serbia does not recognise the independence of Kosovo.
