The Hungarian Embassy in Belgrade hosted a reception to mark the beginning of Hungary’s presidency of the Council of the European Union

The Hungarian Ambassador to Serbia, József Magyar, stated that Hungary’s EU presidency will further advance the accession process of the Western Balkans, with particular priority given to the success of Serbia’s accession negotiations for EU membership.

At the reception in Belgrade, marking the start of Hungary’s presidency of the EU Council, he emphasised the need to seize the favourable atmosphere for enlargement, created in late June during Belgium’s presidency.

Congratulating Hungary on assuming the EU presidency, the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, highlighted that those who disagree with Serbia’s positions must understand that it is a sovereign and independent country. He stressed that Serbia expects a lot from the EU and that peace and stability are crucial. Expressing gratitude for the support, he noted that Hungary has a sincere friend in Serbia. He praised the Hungarians for not being afraid to use the word that many today avoid – peace.

He also underscored that during Hungary’s presidency, even more efforts will be made to advance Serbia’s EU integration process. He expressed the desire for Serbia to make good use of the accession funds, with Hungarian experience providing valuable assistance.

The Head of the EU Delegation to Serbia, Emanuel Giaufret, congratulated the Hungarian Embassy on assuming the presidency, and highlighted the importance of Hungary identifying enlargement as a priority, as this gives everyone additional momentum.

He noted that Serbia has much work ahead, but much has already been accomplished. He remarked that Hungary faces a challenging task.

H.E. József Magyar reiterated that the upcoming year for his country is a year of work and that Hungary will continue to implement the agreed joint programme to ensure peace and security in Europe, both within its borders and in the neighbourhood.
