A European Union envoy is holding crisis talks with Serbian officials in the wake of a victory by a nationalist in a presidential election that plunged the Balkan country into a political uncertainty.

Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak on Thursday met new Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic and potential kingmaker in forming the next government, Socialist leader Ivica Dacic.

The EU hopes that Serbia will quickly form the next government that would continue its candidacy bid as under former President Boris Tadic, who was defeated in the vote last weekend.

Dacic has claimed "some countries" are pressing for a "strategic alliance" between Nikolic and Tadic, which could leave Dacic's Socialists out of the new government.

After meeting Lajcak, Dacic says he wants to stick to a coalition agreement with Tadic's Democrats.
