ATHENS -- Serbian President Boris Tadić conferred Tuesday in Athens with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou.

Tadić thanked him for his initiative for the Western Balkan countries' integration in the European Union by 2014, his office said.

Tadić and Papandreou also spoke about Serbia's EU integration, visa liberalization, fighting organized crime and regional situation.

Tadić's visit to Greece precedes his visit to Rome where he will confer with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano on November 12, the release says.

One day later, Tadić will head a Serbian government delegation to the Serbian-Italian summit.

From Rome, he will travel to Berlin to confer with Chancellor Angela Merkel on November 16.

That meeting will be "one of the first" Merkel will have with foreign statesmen since her re-election, it was announced.

The top-level talks in Athens, Rome and Berlin are part of Tadić's endeavors for securing EU countries' support to the forthcoming EU decisions on visa liberalization and Serbia's integration process, the statement concluded
