A Turkish speaking person has become the youngest minister in the Bosnia-Herzegovina Federation government.
Salmir Kaplan has become the Culture & Sports Minister in the newly-established government in the Federation government--one of the two units setting up the Bosnia-Herzegovina state.
29-year-old Kaplan has received education in Turkey, and was a fan of Turkish soccer team, Besiktas, when he was in Turkey.
"As a minister, I will attach a peculiar importance to relations with Turkey, and make use of Turkey's experiences in culture and sports," Kaplan told AA correspondent.
Kaplan said Bosnia-Herzegovina was expecting Turkey to continue restoring Ottoman artifacts in the country, and his country would encourage Turkish-Bosnian co-production film projects.
The minister also said Turkish and Bosnian soccer teams would also launch cooperation.
Kaplan was the spokesman and the head of youth branches of the Party of Democratic Action (SDA), the biggest party of the Bosnians and one of the government partners.
He joined the party eight years ago.
Kaplan went to Turkey in 2005 for postgraduate education at Istanbul University's Social Sciences Institute, and improved his Turkish.
He attended "Political Academy" of Turkey's ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party last year.
