BELGRADE, Serbia

The President of the Bosniak National Council (BNV) in Serbia on Wednesday requested medical help from Turkey.

Jasmine Curic sent a letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in which she requested urgent medical staff.

Curic said the Sandzak region, especially Novi Pazar city, was facing shortages in combatting COVID-19.

She said that the situation in the region has been very serious over the past 10 days.

“Considering that you are always extending a helping hand to those in need, I am once again requesting urgent help from Sandzak. What we need most is the support of the healthcare workers,” said Curic.

Serbia has reported 13,235 virus cases and 263 deaths.

Earlier, Turkey sent two trucks carrying medical supplies to Serbia’s Novi Pazar.
