Turkish President set for two-day visit to Bosnia

Turkish President Abdullah Gul will travel to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Thursday on a two day official visit.

According to a statement issued by the Turkish Presidential Press Center, President Gul will be in Bosnia-Herzegovina upon an invitation by Haris Silajdzic, President of the Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidency, and other members of the Presidency.

Members of the Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidency had visited Turkey in 2008 and Gul's trip takes place in return of the Bosnians' trip to Turkey, said the Turkish Presidential Press Center.

President Gul will be the first Turkish President to visit Bosnia-Herzegovina in four years.

President Gul and Bosnian officials will discuss bilateral relations with all dimensions, explore ways for future cooperation and exchange views on both regional and international issues, the Turkish Presidency said.

President Gul will address the Bosnian Parliament in Sarajevo, receive high level Bosnian officials, participate in a meeting of the Turkey-Bosnia-Herzegovina Business Forum and visit Turkish universities in the country.

During President Gul's trip, Director General of the Anadolu Agency (AA) Dr. Hilmi Bengi and Director General of the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina News Agency (FENA) Zehrudin Isakovic will sign a cooperation agreement.

President Abdullah Gul will inaugurate the "AA Award Winning Photographs Exhibition" in Sarajevo and participate in a reception to mark the establishment of AA's new office in Sarajevo.

President Gul's trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina will affirm Turkey's continued support to all ethnic and religious groups in Bosnia-Herzegovina with which Turkey shared special historic relations.

Bosnia-Herzegovina's independence, sovereignty and their government's functioning within internationally recognized borders carry crucial importance for peace, stability, tranquility and welfare of the region, the Turkish Presidential Press Center also said.
