Visits

The prime ministers of Hungary and Serbia discussed recent developments following Russia's decision to abandon plans for the South Stream gas pipeline, Bertalan Havasi, the Hungarian prime minister's press chief, said, confirming a report by the Serbian news agency Tanjug yesterday. 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic spoke over the phone after Russian President Vladimir Putin's announcement on Monday that Russia could not start the pipeline construction due to the European Union's obstruction of the project. The two prime ministers will consult again on this matter in the coming days and meet in person at the China-Central and Eastern Europe conference in Belgrade on December 16, Havasi added.
