“Erdogan said to Alija Izetbegovic that history is not limited to a lifetime.

Erdogan spoke in Istanbul at the International Council of Civilization, where he recalled meeting the first President of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alija Izetbegovic, only a day after his death 14 years ago.

The Turkish President recalled visiting Izetbegovic on the day before his death and Izetbegovic said to him, Tayyip, you are the descendants of Sultan Fatih, this space is a testament for you, therefore protect it.”
