The chairman of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee has said that the Visegrád Group is the most successful alliance in the European Union.
During a two-day meeting of the foreign affairs committees of the V4 countries, Zsolt Németh said that the influence of the central European region is growing.
According to MTI, the meeting is also being attended by representatives from Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia to discuss the situation in the western Balkans region.
Németh said that this is why Hungary’s parliament has decided that six of its committees should discuss various issues at the Visegrád level.
Németh said EU enlargement has been one of the bloc’s most successful policies in recent years. The EU integration of the western Balkans is in the economic and security interests of the countries in question as well as the whole of Europe, he added.
He added that the V4 expects that Montenegro and Serbia would be able to move closer to EU membership over the course of next year and expressed hope that the other western Balkan countries would make progress, too.
