Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó has had talks with his Serbian and Slovenian counterparts to ensure smooth-flowing freight and commuter traffic between Hungary and those two countries, the foreign ministry said. “We central Europeans live in tight interdependence,” Szijjártó told MTI, adding that tackling the novel coronavirus epidemic required close cooperation with neighbouring countries. Ensuring uninterrupted supplies is vitally important, he said.
At the talks, agreement was reached that freight traffic will be maintained despite restrictions recently introduced by Serbia, Szijjártó said. Exports to Serbia and imports from that country will continue to cross the border at three places, he added. Hungary and Slovenia will work to provide an opportunity for commuters to cross the common border, he said, adding that people employed on the other side of the border will be allowed to use two further crossing points to go to work – at Kétvölgy and Bajánsenye.
