Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has come out in support for Serbia’s accession into the European Union. Orban commented, “We want to further enlargement of the EU to all countries of the Danube region as soon as possible become members … Serbia would be the first to enter, because we helped her accession to take advantage of the potential that would give Serbia EU” at the sixth annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region. Orban spoke at length about continuing freedom of movement within the EU borders, but how it was now a large task to man the borders of the EU. He was proud of Hungary’s achievements as an EU border nation, but called for greater cooperation in border control with those not in the EU, including neighboring Serbia. (translated from Telegraf)
