Press statement by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán
6 November 2021, Banja Luka (Бања Лука)

Today we paid a working visit to Banja Luka, the capital of Republika Srpska. The political leader here, Mr. Milorad Dodik, visited us for the demographic conference. On that occasion we also held official talks, and now we have returned his visit. We came here for two reasons. Peace, stability and security in the Balkans are important to us, and the Serbs here play a key role in this. Hungarian history clearly illustrates that what happens here also affects us. In addition, it is also important for this region to develop, and we are extending our economic programme referred to as responsible neighbourly relations to the territory of the Republika Srpska in Bosnia. Here too, we will support small and medium-sized enterprises, and in this way we will also create opportunities for Hungarian entrepreneurs to operate here.
