Turkey's president wishes all Balkan countries to live in stability, peace
Turkey's President Abdullah Gul expressed his wish late on Wednesday that all Balkan countries and nations lived in security, stability, peace and welfare, Anadolu News Agency reported.
Gul hosted a formal dinner in honor of Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic, who is visiting Turkey, and said he also wished those states to cooperate in order to build a common future.
"Vujanovic's visit has historic importance as it is the first time that a Montenegrin president is visiting Turkey," Gul said during the dinner.
Gul appreciated Montenegro's progress in integration to Europe and Euro-Atlantic organizations, and Turkey would support Montenegro and share its experiences with this country.
President Gul expressed Turkey's wish to establish a strong partnership and boost its relations and friendship with Montenegro, and underlined importance of implementing cooperation projects particularly in economy, trade and investment.
Gul welcomed Vujanovic's decision to attend Eurasia Economy Summit to take place in Istanbul on April 13-15, which he believed would speed up economic and commercial relations.
Vujanovic arrived in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Monday evening, and met Turkey's President Adullah Gul and Parliament Speaker Mehmet Ali Sahin on Tuesday.
