Turkish President Abdullah Gul will pay an official visit to Serbia on Sunday to seek cooperation with the country in maintaining stability in the Balkan region, Turkey's Presidential Press Center announced Saturday.

Turkey considers Serbia a key country in the Balkans with a leading role in regional stability and the two presidents will discuss opportunities to work together for tranquillity, stability and welfare in the Balkans, said the center in a statement.

The visit will boost political, economic and commercial ties between Turkey and Serbia, with a business delegation to accompany Gul and various economic deals to be inked, said the statement.

Gul and his Serbian counterpart Boris Tadic are expected to review Turkish-Serbian relations and exchange views on regional and daily problems, according to the statement.

Gul's visit, which is upon the invitation by Tadic, will be the first official visit of a Turkish president to Belgrade since 1986.
