Orbán: Balkans peace, stability key for Hungary

Hungary has a vested interest in the peace, stability and security of the Balkans, and Serbians living in Bosnia and Herzegovina's Republika Sprska play a key role in that process, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Saturday, after meeting Milorad Dodik, the Serbian member of Bosnia and Herzegovina's presidential troika, in Banja Luka.

“Hungarian history shows clearly the effect of the [Balkan] region’s events on our country,” and Hungary is committed to supporting the region’s development, Orbán told the press after the meeting.

“We will expand our neighbourhood and economic programme to the Republika Sprska, we will support small and medium-sized enterprises and so open new opportunities for Hungarian enterpreneurs too,” he said.
