Hungary demands faster EU, NATO integration of West Balkans

BUDAPEST, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Hungary wants the European Union to speed up integration of the Western Balkans and for NATO to include those countries, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday.

“Speeding up the accession process is a guarantee of security,” Szijjarto said at a news conference also attended by a dozen officials from Central European and Western Balkan countries. “An unstable and tension-riddled Western Balkans is a serious risk to all of Europe ... We have demands in that regard.” (Reporting by Marton Dunai; Editing by Catherine Evans)
