Kover meets Mongolian counterpart

Speaker of Parliament Laszlo Kover met Gombojavyn Zandashatar, his Mongolian counterpart, for talks in Budapest on Wednesday.

After the talks, Kover said Mongolia was an important, traditional partner for Hungary in the north-eastern Asian region. Bilateral and cultural ties are extremely good, while business ties need to be raised to the same level, he added.

Parliament’s press office quoted Kover as saying at the talks that similarities in the traditions of the two nations create a good basis for further deepening friendly ties. Mongolia’s rich historical and cultural heritage is a great asset, which contributes to the cultural diversity of Eurasians, Kover said. Mongolia’s active foreign policy is key for preserving stability in its region, he added.

Hungary follows Mongolia’s development with a loyal interest, while Hungarian businesses are ready to contribute to Mongolia’s success with special regard to agriculture and water management, Kover said.
