Hungarian President Laszlo Solyom and visiting Polish President Lech Kaczynski agreed on Tuesday that the European Union should pay more attention to its policy towards its eastern neighbors than to its Mediterranean policy, according to reports of Hungarian news agency MTI.

The two presidents emphasized that the new members of the European Union should start talks on strategic issues, such as the joint energy and defense policies, as soon as possible.

They also agreed that friendly relations between the two nations should be further strengthened.

President Kaczynski said that the "social infrastructure," namely centuries-old friendship between the two nations, created an excellent background to Hungarian-Polish cooperation. He called for closer cooperation between the Visegrad Four -- the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia -- and the Baltic states.

Kaczynski met Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany during the visit. He said he had discussed issues concerning the Nabucco gas pipeline with Hungarian Prime Minister, and both sides agreed on the need for diversifying energy acquisition, but there are differences in viewpoints regarding the South Stream and the Nabucco gas pipelines.

The Polish president arrived in Budapest on a one-day visit earlier in the day. He was originally scheduled to spend two days in Hungary but he has to return to Poland due to a debate in the Sejm on the ratification of the European Union's Lisbon Treaty.
