Novak, who is in Albania to attend a summit of the Berlin Process, said Serbia and Hungary were strong strategic partners “with a shared interest to see Serbia within the EU”.

She said Hungary could have a crucial role in Serbia’s integration “since we know the region and its culture very well”.

Hungary supports Serbia’s EU accession because “Serbia is an integral part of the EU, with European values that nobody could question,” she insisted. She added that Serbia’s integration was key in terms of the community’s protecting its borders against illegal migrants.

Novak said Serbia respected the rights of its ethnic minorities, adding that they could prosper and contribute to Serbia’s development.
