(ANSA) - BELGRADE, 08 SET - Serbia and Hungary strengthen their already strong political and economic ties and bilateral relationship by signing a strategic partnership agreement. The two premiers, Hungary's Viktor Orban and Serbia's Ana Brnabic signed the document today during a joint session of the two governments in Budapest.

The ministers of the two countries reached deals in the economy, agriculture, diplomacy, transport, culture. For some time, Serbia has been aiming to intensify relations with Hungary of the ultra-conservative Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who often visits Belgrade and whom President Aleksandar Vucic defines as "a great and sincere friend of Serbia," a supporter of a rapid accession of the former Yugoslav country to the EU.

Today, after signing the agreement, the Hungarian Prime Minister reiterated his support for integrating Belgrade into the European Union, which he considers "decisive" for the security of entire Europe. Vucic and other Serbian leaders do not fail to emphasize the validity of Orban's political and economic course, inviting the country to take him as a model. Moreover, Belgrade often underlined the affinity of its stances with those of the so-called Visegrad Group, which includes Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. (ANSA).
