As a part of their visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina, our guests decided to visit International Burch University, with the aim of discussion of possible cooperation. They presented their last documentary project entitled ''The River Flowing Westwards'', a historical adventure and an unending run towards the West in the last three and half millenia, based on original sources and utilizing modern technologies.

Turkish people have lived in Europe for over 900 years and have played a significant roll in shaping the continent and if becomes a part of European Union, the Republic of Turkey would serve as a bridge between the EU and Turkic and Islamic world.
