Turkey will continue supporting the progress of Bosnia and Herzegovina, its territorial integrity and prosperity, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said following a meeting with his Bosnian counterpart Bisera Turkovic in Sarajevo on Wednesday.
The relations of the two countries are excellent, Cavusoglu stressed, adding that the communication is being maintained regardless of the pandemic.
“We support the integration of BiH and all countries in the Western Balkans into European and Euro-Atlantic institutions. We will resume the growth within trilateral groups because we believe they have a great impact on the region,” the Turkish diplomat told the media.
He announced the meetings that Turkey will host in June, which will gather the countries of Southeast Europe.
Speaking to the media, FM Turkovic said that Turkey “unequivocally supports not only the territorial integrity of BiH but also its road to the membership in the European community.”
“Turkey is one of our most important associates when it comes to cooperation with NATO. Turkey is an important foreign trade partner of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” she said.
Cavusoglu is also set to meet Bosnia's Presidency members, the Chairman of Bosnia's Council of Ministers as well as the representatives of the Parliament during his stay in Sarajevo.
