Content of equipment on board Armenian plane clear - Turkish FM
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said content of equipment on board Syrian-bound plane was clear, Anadolu agency reported.
"Turkey does what is required in the international law and national regulations fastidiously in every step that it takes," Davutoglu said at a press conference with Vice Chairman of the Council of Ministers and Foreign Minister of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Zlatko Lagumdzija in Ankara.
"Our attitude regarding a Syria-bound Armenian plane was clear, as you saw. We never prevented any plane carrying humanitarian aid," he said.
Regarding statements by former Bosnian Serbian leader Radovan Karadzic to the International Criminal Tribunal in his defense that he did not commit genocide in Srebrenica but protected the people, Davutoglu said that those statements were an indignity against the memory of those who lost their lives in Sarajevo.
Davutoglu said that nothing could legitimize the genocide that was committed in Srebrenica
In regard to relations between Turkey and Bosnia-Herzegovina, Davutoglu said that it was the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Davutoglu said Turkey attached a great importance to stability, tranquility and prosperity of Bosnia-Herzegovina, stating that Turkey was ready to make every kind of contribution to its stability and prosperity.
Turkey also attached a great importance to economic development of Bosnia-Herzegovina, he said.
Davutoglu said they called on Turkish companies to invest in this country, and they were working to boost trade volume to 1 billion U.S. dollars.
Turkey has been exerting great efforts regarding Bosnia-Herzegovina's NATO and EU memberships, he said.
