Serbia cancels summit with Turkey, Bosnia

Serbian president Tomislav Nikolic has cancelled a trilateral meeting with Turkey and Bosnia that was going to be held in Belgrade this month, source from Serbian Presidency confirmed to IBNA.

Earlier this week, Turkish media reported that “Serbia has postponed indefinitely the trilateral meeting with Turkey… after Turkey failed to mend ties with Serbs by expressing regret for the “misinterpretation” of Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s remarks on Kosovo”.

Today’s Zaman has learned that “Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoğlu’s attempt to mend ties with Serbia fell short of Serbian’s expectations”.

“Kosovo is Turkey and Turkey is Kosovo”, Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said during his visit to this disputed territory on October 23. Erdoğan was accompanied by Albanian PM Edi Rama and Kosovo PM Hashim Thaçi.
