The foreign minister said the Assembly of the Autonomous province of Vojvodina has once again elected an ethnic Hungarian for president, and István Pásztor, head of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians (VMSZ), deserves the appointment as he has done much to establish the Serbian-Hungarian friendship.
Peter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said on Facebook that Serbian-Hungarian relations had been transformed “from hatefulness to a historic friendship” thanks to plenty of compromises and a lot of work. “Our relations have never been as good as now and this benefits not only the two countries but above all the ethnic Hungarian community of Vojvodina,” he said.
Minister Szijjártó said that Hungary was making every effort to help Serbia join the European Union as soon as possible and supports investment by Hungarian and Vojvodina companies, while “Serbia gives more rights to ethnic Hungarians living there than any of our other neighbors”.
