    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was greeted with an official ceremony in Croatia’s capital Zagreb on Thursday, the final stop on his three-nation Balkan tour.

    Erdogan and his Croatian counterpart, Zoran Milanovic, will meet one-on-one and hold inter-delegation meetings before holding a joint news conference.

    All aspects of bilateral relations will be reviewed during the talks, and steps to improve cooperation in various areas will be discussed. Balkan developments and international issues will also be on the agenda.

    Erdogan will later open the Islamic Culture Center in Sisak, the capital city.

    Erdogan will meet Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic after the wreath-laying ceremony at the Homeland Monument in Zagreb. Later, he will attend Milanovic’s Türkiye-Croatia Business Forum and official dinner.

    Erdogan began his three-nation Balkan tour on Tuesday with Bosnia and Herzegovina, followed by Serbia.

    Turkey prioritises the Balkans not only for political, economic, and geographical reasons, but also for historical, cultural, and human ties to the region.
