Turkey, Serbia sign trade deal

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Saturday Turkey and Serbia were determined to work together for stability in Balkans.

Davutoglu and Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic, who is visiting Turkish capital of Ankara, held a joint press conference.

Free trade agreement signed between Turkey and Serbia would be approved in the Turkish parliament next week and this agreement would contribute to economic relations between the two countries, Davutoglu said.

Davutoglu said they have been working on some significant infrastructure projects in Serbia.

The two countries were resolute to collaborate to boost economic prosperity in Balkans, he said.

"Regional matters were also discussed in the meeting. I congratulated Jeremic once again regarding the ongoing process with Bosnia-Herzegovina," he said.

In his part, Jeremic said his meeting with Davutoglu was fruitful, noting that Turkey and Serbia shared a common vision regarding stability and peace in Balkans.

Serbia and Turkey have been working to solve problems in the region, Jeremic said.

Turkish businessmen's investments and initiatives played a significant role in the region, he said. 

After the meeting with Davutoglu, Turkish President Abdullah Gul received Jeremic and an accompanying delegation.
