Turkey's ambassador in the Serbian capital of Belgrade presented his letter of credentials to the country's president.
Suha Umar, who was appointed as Turkish Ambassador in Belgrade last February, was received by Serbian President Boris Tadic on Monday, officials said.
Upon Kosovo's declaring its independence, the Serbian Foreign Ministry adopted an action plan envisaging to minimize diplomatic relations with the countries that recognized Kosovo's independence.
Serbia recalled its ambassador in Ankara Vladimir Curgus within this framework. Turkey's ambassador in Belgrade has also been waiting to present his letter of credentials to the Serbian president since then.
Delivering statements on such issue before departing for Iran, Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said that he recently had a phone conversation with his Serbian counterpart and he had the impression that problems on such matter would be solved.
Babacan also said that he thought the Turkish ambassador would present his credentials and the Serbian ambassador would begin his mandate in Turkey soon.
