Hungary’s relations with her neighbours are a top priority for the country’s justice administration, Minister of Justice László Trócsányi said in an interview published in the Hungarian-language Vojvodina daily Magyar Szó on 11 June 2014.

Mr. Trócsányi was interviewed at a conference on territorial and non-territorial autonomy held in Palic last week. He took his oath as Minister on the following day.

He underlined the importance of relations with Serbia and noted that he planned to meet his Serbian counterpart in Belgrade this autumn and would also hold talks with leaders in Vojvodina province.

„We could share our experience of [EU] accession with Serbia. We could offer an exchange of students and experts and organise joint training courses not only in Hungarian but also in English and French. It is in our basic interest that Serbia joins the EU without delay, and also the Schengen area if possible,” he added.
