World Bulletin / News Desk

A major free-trade deal is likely to take center-stage in a two-day visit by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Serbia which begins on Tuesday.

Arriving on Monday evening after a one-day official visit to Ukraine, Erdogan will spend Tuesday and Wednesday in the Balkan country.

Erdogan is scheduled to meet his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic and the country's parliament speaker. They will also hold talks on bilateral issues and sign a range of agreements.

The leaders are also expected to attend the Turkey-Serbia Business Forum.

Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, speaking after a meeting with Turkish ambassador Tanju Bilgic, said the Erdogan visit was crucial for improving ties between the two countries.

Brnabic said a free-trade agreement was critical for the strengthening of economic and trade ties.
