Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Aug. 20 that he had discussed building a Belgrade-Budapest railway, natural gas storage capacities and new checkpoints with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Vucic told a news conference after meeting with Orban in Budapest, which he paid a two-day visit, that a new type of border control would be tried out on the Hungarian border. "We spoke for the first time and we will offer it for the first time to our Romanian friends, too, at the tripoint. This is exceptionally important to Reske-Horgos," he said.

The Serbian president added that he had also discussed the situation in Kosovo with Orban, noting that Hungary understood the issue well -- better than 20 years ago. "The trend of mutual understanding will continue, because we are behaving as sincere and close friends," Vucic said.

In the same statement, he announced that elections would be held very soon in Serbia -- in three to six months, or six to seven at the latest. He said regular local and provincial elections would be held as they were supposed to, and that a parliamentary vote would most likely be held, as well.
