Erdogen with Serbian president, Vucis to discuss Bosnia


"We have agreed to bring together Serb, Croat and Bosnian leaders and solve the crisis in Bosnia and Herzegovina," said Erdogan

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended a press conference on Tuesday with Aleksandar Vucic, Serbian president.

"International community must act together to overcome the crisis in Bosnia and Herzegovina." We aim to bring an end to tensions in Bosnia using a positive approach," he also added."If such an approach is realized on a win-win basis, Turkey will do everything it can."

The Turkish leader also underlined Turkey's respect towards Bosnia's territorial integrity, emphasizing the dangers of ethnic divide in the restive Balkan state.

"I have told Mr Vucic that Turkey fully respects Bosnia and Herzegovina's territorial integrity," he said.

President Vucic also underlined that Belgrade highly respects the territorial integrity of neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 Turkey and Serbia recently increased their trade volume to $2 billion, adding that the two countries' next goal is to reach $5 billion, Erdogan.

Vucic exclaimed that Serbia's trade volume with Turkiye had reached its "best momentum in history."

Last month, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar also said that” Turkey is ready to act as a mediator on the political crisis in Bosnia- Herzegovina” and will do what it can to ensure stability amid concerns over separatist moves by Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik.

According to the Defense Ministry, Akar held an official meetup this week with his Bosnian counterpart, the Bosnian presidency, and other officials.

"We view Bosnia-Herzegovina as a whole. We have done all we can for its unity and stability, and we will continue to do so," Akar told reporters after his talks, referring to its Bosniak, Croat and Serb peoples making up one nation.

The surge in separatist rhetoric in Bosnia-Herzegovina does not serve any party, Akar also said Monday during his visit to the country.

"We believe the separatist rhetoric in Bosnia-Herzegovina benefits no one," he told a joint news conference with his Bosnian counterpart Sifet Podzic in the capital Sarajevo.

"We're following the situation closely. We invite the relevant parties to reason sensibly and act prudently. He said that existing and potential problems could also be resolved through negotiations and peaceful means,” said Akar.
