Following talks in Budapest on Wednesday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán signed a strategic agreement with his Serbian counterpart, Ana Brnabić.
The prime minister said the reconstruction of the Budapest-Belgrade railway line will be completed by 2025. PM Orbán noted the growing cargo traffic at the border crossings between the two countries. The Röszke-Horgoš (Horgos) and Tompa-Kelebija (Kelebia) crossings will undergo major reconstruction to increase their capacity by the end of 2022, and the government is looking into opening the crossing at Hercegszántó-Bački Breg (Béreg) for cargo traffic, he said.
Besides the agreement signed by the heads of government, Hungarian and Serbian ministers signed agreements on cooperation in agriculture, economy, joint border patrols, hovercraft services between the two capitals and other projects.
