At the invitation of the Backa Topola town council, the Assembly and the Executive Council of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, as well as the Roman Catholic Church, the Chairman of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia and the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Hungary, Mr Predrag Markovic and Ms Katalin Szili, attended the celebrations marking the 100th Anniversary of the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Backa Topola, the tallest and largest cathedral in this part of South-Eastern Europe.


At the invitation of the Backa Topola town council, the Assembly and the Executive Council of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, as well as the Roman Catholic Church, the Chairman of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia and the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Hungary, Mr Predrag Markovic and Ms Katalin Szili, attended the celebrations marking the 100th Anniversary of the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Backa Topola, the tallest and largest cathedral in this part of South-Eastern Europe.

As part of regional and international co-operation of the two countries, with special emphasis placed on collaboration between the Chairman of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia and Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Hungary, the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Roman Catholic Cathedral showed once again that peaceful co-existence of different ethnic groups and cultures in Vojvodina is not only possible, but also represents the one true path for Serbia on her way to European integrations. A press conference was held after the meeting of the Chairman and Speaker, in which they both reiterated their joint view that the level of ethnic tension in Vojvodina has been reduced, thanks to the commitment of the local authorities and self-government, as well as their own personal efforts. Markovic and Szili took this opportunity to remind the public that the Tolerance Programme, established by the two Assemblies two years ago, shall this year be held in Szeged.

The event to mark the 100th anniversary of the Cathedral was also attended Chairman of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, Bojan Pajtic, the vice-chairman of the Assembly of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, Sandor Egeresy, and hosts of the celebrations, Backa Topola Municipal Manager, Attila Babi, and dignitaries of the Roman Catholic Church.
