Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Monday that his country’s borders were open to Serbian citizens without coronavirus testing or quarantine.

Speaking at a meeting on the border with Serbian European Integration Minister Jadranka Joksimovic, Szijjártó said that Serbia is the first non-European Union country that Hungary has opened its borders to since both countries have successfully tackled the pandemic, the Serbian state TV (RTS) reported him as saying.  

Joksimovic said that the opening of the border is important for people in both countries. “This shows that our cooperation is one of partnership and the result of the good neighbor relations that we maintain,” she said.  

The meeting at the Serbia-Hungary border was also attended by Vojvodina Assembly Speaker István Pásztor, leader of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians.
