Economic cooperation, visa waivers for holders of diplomatic passports, scholarships and the situation in the Middle East involving Syrian refugees were on the agenda during Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s visit to Lebanon on Wednesday and Thursday.
A series of cooperation agreements on political and educational issues will be signed following the visit, Orbán said after talks with Lebanese President Michel Sleiman.
Lebanon’s Daily Star reported Orbán as saying Hungary could be a partner in energy and military training and cooperation, with Sleiman speaking of the importance of continuing to promote the exchange of expertise.
Orbán was accompanied by a 36-strong delegation of Hungarian business people who attended a forum.
Hungary considers Lebanon as one of the most important countries for the region’s stability and plans to include Lebanon’s strategic role in the agenda of the next meeting of European Union foreign ministers, state secretary for foreign affairs and foreign economy Péter Szijjártó said on Wednesday.
