Danube strategy a symbol of Europe’s "reunification", says minister

Sankt Polten, November 12 (MTI) – The EU’s Danube strategy is a symbol of Europe’s reunification, it is an opportunity and a responsibility at the same time, Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi told a conference in Austria on Friday.

The Danube strategy is geared to strengthen good neighbourly relations and help peoples of the region “really grow closer”, Martonyi said at the event organised by the Austrian Bundesrat and the Lower Austrian parliament in Sankt Polten.

    He said that the macroregional Danube strategy is likely to be approved under Hungary’s European Union Presidency in 2011.
