Bosnia and Herzegovina plays a key role in the stability of the region and Turkey will not allow a new conflict, the Turkish Foreign Minister said on Saturday.

Mevlut Cavusoglu's statements came during a joint press conference with his Bosnian counterpart, Jasmina Turkovic in Sarajevo, Telegrafi reports.

"Bosnia and Herzegovina is in a key position in terms of regional stability, so we can not allow a new conflict here in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"Everyone must act responsibly in this regard," Cavusoglu said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to hold the Turkey-Bosnia-Herzegovina-Serbia trilateral summit at the appropriate time, he added.

"During our contacts in Belgrade, we saw that the Serbian authorities are also ready for this summit, as well as (Serbian President Aleksandar) Vucic."

Cavusoglu met with Serbian counterpart Nikola Selakovic in Belgrade on Wednesday.

They exchanged views on the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as on the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina.

Cavusoglu reiterated Turkey's strong support for Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region.

He is currently on a Balkan tour.

So far he has visited Serbia, Northern Macedonia and Croatia and his next destination is Kosovo.
