Szijjarto: Government supports expanding Abraham Accords

The Hungarian government supports and calls for expanding the Abraham Accords which normalised Israel's relations with several Arab states, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said after speaking with Eli Kohen, his Israeli counterpart, by phone on Monday.

Based on experience of the past decades, the Accords is the first initiative that can be instrumental in establishing peace in the Middle East, Szijjarto said on Facebook. He added that at the talks initiated by Kohen they had also reviewed the region’s security situation.

“I assured my Israeali colleague that Hungary continues to support a fair and balanced approach to Israel in international forums,” Szijjarto said.

He said that economic cooperation served the interests of both countries and will be further developed.

They agreed that the Israeli foreign minister would soon pay an official visit to Budapest.
