European Union enlargement "is in good hands", Peter Szijjarto, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said during a World Economic Forum event in Geneva on Friday, insisting that the enlargement and neighborhood portfolio would be "the Hungarian commissioner's responsibility". Szijjarto told a forum on the Western Balkans attended by leaders and top officials of seven Western Balkan countries that EU enlargement policy would receive a boost. "Hungary not only talks about its political objectives but takes action to realise them, too," he said. "Now that a Hungarian commissioner will oversee EU enlargement, the EU policy ... will gain new momentum."
