World needs a stable Türkiye: Bosnian defense minister

‘We need a stable Türkiye that will keep the world and the entire turbulent region under one umbrella,’ says Zukan Helez

SARAJEVO, Bosnia and Herzegovina (AA) - A stable Türkiye is needed to help ensure both regional and global stability, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s defense minister said Sunday.​​​​​​​

Zukan Helez was speaking to Anadolu ahead of his official visit to Türkiye, during which he will also attend the 2023 International Defense Industry Fair in Istanbul from July 25-28.

"Türkiye is a big country with a large population. When it comes to separatism, especially violent separatists, they are condemned all over the world. When someone wants to change things violently, they do it with terrorism -- that is, illegally. It should be condemned and punished. We need a stable Türkiye that will keep the world and the entire turbulent region under one umbrella,'' said Helez.

He said the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) poses a threat to Bosnia and Herzegovina and the whole world as well.

FETO and its US-based leader Fethullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016 in Türkiye, which left 252 people dead and 2,734 wounded.

Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.

FETO also has a network of private schools abroad as a revenue stream to support its illegal activities.

The terrorist group is reportedly present in more than 150 countries around the world and operates by running schools, non-governmental organizations, lobbyist organizations, hospitals, media outlets and other companies.

Helez added that the focus of his visit to Ankara is to develop financial cooperation between his country and Türkiye in the military field and to take the necessary steps for this.

Bosnia-Herzegovina's top priorities are joining the political and economic community of European states as well as NATO.

Türkiye is openly supporting Bosnia Herzegovina's Euro-Atlantic integration with its institutions.
