Szijjarto: Hungary strives for cooperation based on mutual respect with Russia

Hungary strives for cooperation with Russia based on mutual respect, even amid the current geopolitical situation, Peter Szijjarto, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said on Facebook on Friday.

Cooperation with Russia in the key strategic areas is crucial for Hungary, the minister said, noting that the country’s energy security would not be guaranteed without maintaining ties with Russia.

Health care and agriculture are two sectors not subject to sanctions, so Hungary continues to support its agricultural and health companies looking to expand on the Russian market, and promotes closes cooperation in health care, too, Szijjarto said.

He praised Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko, the head of the economic mixed committee, for his contributions to strengthening bilateral cooperation in areas such as gas supply and the delivery of coronavirus vaccines.
