Vucic: Serbia feels Turkey as its friend

Erdogan to visit Ukraine Serbia next week

Erdogan to visit Ukraine Serbia next week

"We do not see him (Bass) as the representative of the United States in Turkey", he said at a news conference with President Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade.

Erdogan and his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko will chair the sixth meeting of the Turkey-Ukraine High Level Strategic Council, the president's press office said last week. Among countries which do not recognise Crimea as Russian territory are Turkey, the U.S. and EU.

"This visit is meant to build up political ties between the two countries".

The two leaders will "broadly" exchange views on bilateral relations and regional issues in the capital, Kiev, where a number of agreements are also expected to be signed. "We will encourage these businesspeople to invest in Serbia".

Serbia and Turkey will in the future build better relations and their trade balance will exceed 1 billion USA dollars by the end of this year, Vucic predicted.

Erdogan expressed confidence that Russian Federation would not object to a Turkish plan to transfer natural gas from its TurkStream project to Serbia.

"I will never stand with nationalism, especially not ethnic nationalism, and that is the message I will send to people", Erdogan said, adding that there are "no problems" in Novi Pazar, where he and Vucic will travel tomorrow. The Turkish leader, now on a two-day visit to Serbia, said there are people who "will not appreciate the rapprochement of Turkey and Serbia", but cooperation, such as building a modern road between Belgrade and Sarajevo, would be an example of problem solving in the Balkans.

Beta is reporting that the visit of Erdogan - who has arrived here with a delegation of 185 businesspeople - will focus on economic cooperation, with Serbia "interested in attracting more Turkish investors".

The visit takes place under extraordinary security measures.
