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.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
