Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, whose country currently holds the EU presidency, said on Wednesday in Sarajevo that Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH)'s membership in the EU was equally important to all parties, reported the Serbian news agency Beta.

Orban, who met with Nikola Spiric, chairman of the Council of Ministers and members of the BiH presidency, stated that his country supported not only BiH's membership in the EU, but the integration of the entire Western Balkan region.

"The EU needs BiH and the Western Balkans," said Orban.

Orban said the country had made great strides toward EU membership, adding that "BiH has a reliable partner in Hungary."

Spiric and Orban discussed bilateral cooperation in the areas of economy and trade, with Spiric inviting potential Hungarian investors to visit BiH.
