Izetbegovic said he discussed many issues with Erdoğan in last week’s meeting that lasted two hours.

“Erdoğan has good relations with (Serbian President Aleksandar) Vucic and Dodik. Erdoğan is a leader who is very strong and establishes good relations. We have to take advantage of that,” said Izetbegovic.

After meeting Dodik, Erdoğan also met with Margareta Cederfelt, head of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), at the Presidential Complex.
