Foreign minister highlights ‘good hopes for harmony’ between Belgium, Hungary EU presidencies

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, on a visit to Belgium, on Wednesday noted similarities between the politics of Hungary's government and of Flanders, Belgium's strongest region.

In a Facebook post, Szijjarto said both Hungary and Flanders were “supporters of rationalistic politics, promotion of free trade, and the crucial importance of protecting Europe’s external borders”. They also agree that “there is no safe and efficient energy supply without nuclear energy,” he added.

“All that gives us good hopes in terms of harmonising the consecutive Belgian and Hungarian EU presidencies,” Szijjarto said.

He also noted a record Hungarian-Flemish trade turnover last year, which he said could even be surpassed next year.
