HUNGARY EXPRESSES SUPPORT FOR ARMENIA’S BID TO JOIN EU
Nov 10 2009
BUDAPEST, Nov. 10 (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 Sargsian.
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.
Sargsian, 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.
