Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic will arrive in Turkey tomorrow for a two-day official visit at the invitation of his counterpart, Abdullah Gül.

Considered a strong indication of improvement in bilateral relations with the Balkan country, the visit follows a bilateral visit to Belgrade by Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu.

A statement from the Turkish presidency’s press center said Gül visited Serbia in 2009 after former Serbian President Boris Tadic’s visit to Turkey in 2007.

“Bilateral relations, regional issues, the continuity of peace, stability and security in the Balkans will be revised and assessed during meetings,” the statement said.

Nikolic’s visit will be the sixth formal duplex visit of the past five years at a presidential level.

After completing his formal talks in Ankara, Nikolic will proceed to Istanbul and meet with representatives from the Turkish business sector.
