Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ on May 19 warned of possible “assassination threats” against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan during his visit to Bosnia on May 20.

“We are aware that there are circles who are uncomfortable with such a great leader, a man with a cause. We are aware that they want to get rid of our president. These assassination threats are not new, they have always been there,” Bozdağ tweeted.

“But Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is not a man who would be afraid of death threats, or who would turn away from his path and his cause,” he added. 

The Turkish president will speak at a public rally in Sarajevo on the afternoon of May 20 and will also hold talks with Bakir Izetbegovic, the Bosniak member of the tripartite Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to a statement by the presidential press office.
