Szijjártó in Phone Talks With High Representative for Bosnia-Herzegovina


Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s foreign minister, spoke by phone on Tuesday evening with Christian Schmidt, the High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, and confirmed to him that peace, stability and an economic development of the Western Balkans is fully in Hungary’s national security and economic interest.


“Bosnia and Herzegovina undoubtedly plays a key role from this point of view in the region and this is why we, Hungarians consider it important to have a continued meaningful dialogue based on mutual respect with the leaders of Bosnia,” Szijjártó said on Facebook. He said Hungary saw no point in threatening with imposing sanctions, adding that European politicians should also realise that “talking with the Western Balkans would be more welcome than talking about them”.
