Hungary To Support Armenia’s EU Bid

prra10110910 (Small)BUDAPEST (Xinhua)–Hungarian President Laszlo Solyom says his country backs Armenia’s efforts to join the European Union (EU). Solyom made clear his country’s stance during a meeting Monday with visiting Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian.

Solyom said although it was the first time that an Armenian president has visited Hungary, a sizable Armenian community has lived in the country for centuries.

He called for the continued promotion of bilateral economic, cultural and political relations.

Sarkisian, who arrived in Hungary on Sunday for a three-day official visit, said Armenia-Hungary ties were developing soundly and both countries should continue to promote their political dialogue.

He said a forum of business leaders from the two countries, set to begin Tuesday, should help them sign contacts.

Meanwhile, the finance ministers of the two countries signed an accord to prevent dual taxation.
