Vladimir Orlic, the speaker of the Serbian parliament, and Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said in a meeting in Budapest that the two countries' excellent bilateral relations were a "guarantee that overall cooperation will be maintained and further elevated."
According to a press release issued by the Serbian parliament on March 27, Orlic and Szijjarto also voiced pleasure at the high rate of interaction among the two nation's officials and the high level of bilateral ties.
"Hungary is our fifth largest foreign-trade partner today, which is eight slots up from six or seven years ago. In commodity exchange we have noted records year after year, and we have also had a dramatic rise in investments -- over the last 12 years, Hungary has become one of the top ten largest foreign investors in Serbia," Orlic said.
Szijjarto said Serbia and Hungary planned to double electric energy transport capacities to facilitate and expedite exchange. He said the two countries had succeeded in providing and guaranteeing their citizens stable fuel supply in the face of the energy crisis affecting Europe, noting that this would not have been possible without strategic cooperation.
