MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) - Belarus welcomes Hungary's willingness to intensify relations, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media following the meeting with Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto on 22 June, BelTA has learned.
“We had short but very rich and fruitful negotiations. Our meetings at various international venues have already become a tradition. They are always very open, frank and constructive. We see Hungary's systematic approach to develop further a foreign trade strategy of opening up toward the East and welcome its intention to intensify relations with Belarus,” Vladimir Makei said.
The parties discussed the state and prospects of the Belarusian-Hungarian relations, Belarus' cooperation with the EU, and also Belarus-Hungary interaction in international organizations. “We have no disagreements in the abovementioned areas,” the minister said.
Vladimir Makei believes that despite the steadily developing relations between Belarus and Hungary, the potential of the trade and economic cooperation is still hugely untapped. “We have agreed to focus on some two or three concrete cooperation areas that can bring the biggest results and become so-called success stories,” he said.
