Erdogan arrived in Belgrade

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Serbia late on Monday, for a two day state visit that started on Tuesday.

Erdogan was officially welcomed in front of the Palace of Serbia this morning, and then had a meeting with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic.

 

He will also speak with National Assembly President Maja Gojkovic, and later attend a business forum with Vucic

 

On Wednesday, the Turkish leader will visit the town of Novi Pazar in southwestern Serbia.

 

In an editorial written for the Belgrade-daily Politika ahead of the visit, Erdogan said that Turkey and Serbia are "two key countries in the Balkans," and that their cooperation is of key importance for maintaining stability, peace, and prosperity in the region, and throughout Europe.

 

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 Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline will also be discussed, while the two countries should sign a new free trade agreement and several other investment deals.

 

The report noted that bilateral trade reached USD 900 million in 2016 and is expected to exceed one billion this year. From January to August 2017, Serbia sold goods to Turkey worth EUR 442 million, while imports stood at USD 284 million, the report said.

 

The Belgrade-based daily Blic is reporting on Tuesday that the visit will pass under unprecedented security measures, that will "put to shame" those that had been in place for the visits of top Russian and US officials.

 

About 3,000 police will be deployed in the streets of Belgrade, while the route of Erdogan's motorcade during his stay in the capital has not been announced - so it remains unknown which streets would be shut down partially or completely.
