Vucic underlined that the relations between Serbia and Hungary are now better than ever. “I want to remind you that Serbia will remain committed to continue on this path. I am firmly convinced that the Hungarian national minority in Serbia, and the Serbian minority in Hungary, contribute to this, and that they enjoy the advantages which stem from the stronger bilateral ties as well as from our personal friendship”, Vucic said in the letter.
