Sijart’s message: Accept Serbia as soon as possible


Peter Sijarto

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, Peter Szijarto, said that the Kosovo issue should not be a condition for Serbia’s European integration.

– We are keeping our fingers crossed for the success of the dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo and we believe that this situation can only be resolved through negotiations. However, we do not accept raising the issue of Kosovo as a condition regarding the European integration of Serbia – said the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary.

According to Kosovo Online, he promised that during the Hungarian presidency of the EU, in the second half of 2024, there will be greater progress on Serbia’s path to the EU.

He stated that the EU is currently, unfortunately, in a very bad state.

– We, the Hungarians, are in favor of strengthening the EU. To the question of how we can strengthen the Union, we offer an answer, which is enlargement. As much as we are able to expand, we will be stronger – Sijarto is convinced.

In this sense, he points out that Europe needs the Western Balkans to join as soon as possible.

– The most important country of the Western Balkans is Serbia. It is in the interest of Europe that Serbia joins as soon as possible. We cannot accept the behavior of Brussels and some Western countries towards Serbia, because we truly believe that the Union needs Western Baljan more than the region needs the Union – said Sijarto.

That is why he hopes that already this year progress will be noted in terms of Serbia’s accession process to the Union.

– If that doesn’t happen, then next year, during Hungary’s presidency, we will take huge steps. I can promise you that – Sijarto said.
