Novak: Croatia, Hungary could make EU stronger

Croatia and Hungary, two countries in central Europe, could help the European Union become stronger, President Katalin Novak told an international press conference held with Zoran Milanovic, her Croatian counterpart, in Budapest on Friday.

Their talks earlier in the day focused on the war in Ukraine, the fight against illegal migration, European integration of the Western Balkans, efforts to promote infrastructure and energy cooperation, the demographic crisis, and issues around ethnic minorities, she noted.

Novak said Hungary welcomed Croatia’s accession to the Schengen zone and its recent introduction of the euro, and highlighted the importance of bilateral trade ties and tourism.
