The Turkish prime minister will participate in a ceremony to take place in Bosnia and Herzegovina to commemorate the Srebrenica genocide.
The 15th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide will take place on July 11 in Potocari.
Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan will attend the commemoration ceremony during which the bodies of over 800 people who were found in mass graves will be laid to rest.
8,000 men were massacred in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1995, the biggest tragedy in Europe following the World War II.
The commemoration ceremonies will be held between July 8 and 10 and include a bicycle marathon, a peace parade, a documentary film show, and a photograph exhibition.
Turkey's state-run TRT channel will live broadcast this year's ceremonies as well as the BBC, CNN and Al Jazeera TV channels.
The Srebrenica Massacre refers to the July 1995 killing of more than 8,000 Muslim Bosnian men and boys, as well as the ethnic cleansing of 25,000-30,000 refugees in the area of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina, by units under the command of General Ratko Mladic during the Bosnian War.
In 1993, the United Nations had declared Srebrenica a "safe area" under UN protection but its Protection Force (UNPROFOR), represented on the ground by a 400-strong contingent of armed Dutch peacekeepers, failed to prevent the massacre.
The Srebrenica massacre is the largest mass murder in Europe since World War II. In 2004, the International Court of Justice in The Hague ruled that the Srebrenica massacre was genocide.
However, the Bosnians want the international court to acknowledge that the genocide was carried out in entire Bosnia not only in Srebrenica.
