Ukraine and Hungary will participate in the session of the bilateral intergovernmental commission in Budapest. During the meeting, the sides plan to discuss the creation of a checkpoint at the Ukrainian-Hungarian border as Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó stated during a briefing with Vice Premier on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Dmytro Kuleba.
“In March, in Budapest, we will hold a bilateral session of the intergovernmental commission on cooperation. We would like to achieve success at these talks in March and agree on the construction of at least one checkpoint at the border,” Szijjártó said.
Hungarian Foreign Ministry added that soon ‘the direct train would be launched’ between Budapest and Zaporizhia and it would unite five cities.
Earlier, the holding of the intergovernmental commission was announced. Szijjártó stated that Hungary wants to achieve the development in agriculture and healthcare spheres and continue the provision of humanitarian aid to Ukraine and improvement of the economy of Zakarpattia. Hungarian foreign minister states that the successful session of the commission will open the way for the meeting of PM of Hungary Viktor Orban and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Besides, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Péter Szijjártó believes that Ukraine should not increase the number of Ukrainian subjects taught in Hungarian schools. That is why Hungary asks Ukraine to amend the new law on secondary education.
