Earlier in the week, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has said an upcoming summit meeting of the Turkish, Serbian and Bosnian presidents in Turkey would be a major event for the Balkans.

"Saturday's summit meeting in Istanbul will be an important step for the Balkans and it will present a very important picture for the region," Davutoglu told reporters on Wednesday after a meeting with EU's enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fule in Brussels.
