Hungary, Ukraine agree to open new border crossing

Hungary and Ukraine have signed an agreement on opening a new border crossing point between Nagyhodos in Hungary and Velyka Palad (Nagypalad) in Ukraine, the foreign minister said on Wednesday.

The new crossing station will be the sixth between the two countries, Peter Szijjarto said on Facebook.

The minister noted his phone talks last month with Andriy Yermak, head of the Ukrainian president’s office, that led to the agreement on the new border crossing as well as an agreement to allow cross-border freight traffic at Beregsurany.

The agreement on the Nagyhodos-Velyka Palad crossing point was signed this week by Oleksandr Kubrakov, Ukraine’s infrastructure minister, and Hungary’s ambassador to Kyiv, Szijjarto said.
