Aleksandar Vucic was sworn in on Tuesday at the National Assembly for his second term as president of Serbia, according to Xinhua.

Following his victory in the April 3 presidential elections, where he won 58.59 percent of the votes cast, Vucic took the oath of office in front of Serbia's lawmakers, ministers, former presidents and diplomats. He said his priorities will include maintaining peace and stability in the region, and that he will work to keep the Balkan country on its European Union (EU) membership path.

Stressing the importance of his country's trade and investments ties with the European Union (EU), he said that Serbia wishes to become "a society of a European type," and pledged further reforms to that end.

He confirmed that the new government, led by his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), will be formed by the end of July.
