SARAJEVO, Bosnia and Herzegovina - Turkey will continue to support Bosnia and Herzegovina, said Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, on Wednesday in a visit to the capital Sarajevo which has witnessed scenes of mass unrest since Friday.

"Turkey is and will be on the side of our Bosnian brothers anytime for its stability, peace, political and territorial integrity," said Davutoglu. "We came here to reaffirm this."

Davutoglu also stressed that all sides needed to develop stronger relations to assure peace and stability in the region.

Mass protests broke out in the Balkan country last week, leaving tens of people injured and government buildings burned down. The protests erupted first in central city Tuzla, demanding new reforms to reduce unemployment and officials to resign.
