The principal of the Islamic Institute in Novi Pazar, Enver Gigić, participated in the conversation on behalf of the Serbian side.

Today Muslims are a minority in multicultural and multireligious countries such as Russia and Serbia, this is why the Muslim leaders of both countries focus on educating the younger generation and preparing qualified personnel for their communities. In this context the parties discussed the project of the Balkan centre for Qur'an hafizs implemented in Novi Pazarunder the patronage of the Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov.
