But talking during his meeting with Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic, Djokovic revealed he is almost ready to have his say.
"I am very grateful for your acts that also put you in a troubling political position in international relations," Djokovic said of Vucic.
"I will remember that for a long time. My ties to the Serbian people are getting stronger every day and the events in Australia showed the connection will be even stronger.
"Please be patient, as I will talk in more detail about everything that happened there in 7-10 days."
Earlier on Thursday, Serbian authorities revealed that they had found no wrongdoing in Djokovic's Covid-19 tests that he recorded before travelling to Australia.
Two separate studies had highlighted supposed discrepancies in the sequencing of the PCR tests, but the Belgrade Public Prosecutor's Office revealed that Serbia's Health Ministry had deemed them to be valid.
Djokovic is set to return to action at the upcoming Dubai Tennis Championships which begin on February 14.
