Szijjarto: Hungary sending 20 police to guard Serbia's southern border
Hungary is supporting Serbia by sending 20 police officers to protect that country's southern border, because there is a real danger of a new wave of migrants leaving to cross the western Balkans, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Monday after talks with Serbian counterpart Ivica Dacic.
Hungary's firm standpoint is that Serbia is prepared for European Union membership and it is in Hungary's interest that Serbia should join as quickly as possible. He added that this was in the interest of the Hungarian minority living there as well as being in the interest of Hungarian security.
Dacic said ties between the two countries were friendly and there was agreement in many areas. This may have been hard to imagine a few years ago, the minister added.
