Foreign Ministers of Ukraine and Hungary Dmytro Kuleba and Peter Szijjarto agreed to restore constructive dialogue following Budapest's interference in local elections in Ukraine. Ukraine's Foreign Minister stated that on his Facebook page.

"Peter supported my proposal to turn the page on which Ukraine and Hungary recently exchanged painful blows. We both agree that we need to draw the right conclusions from what happened two weeks ago and hold a constructive dialogue in the future. There is no alternative to the good-neighborliness of the Ukrainian and Hungarian people and our common European and the Euro-Atlantic future," Kuleba wrote.

The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Hungary is an important neighbor of Ukraine, and Szijjarto is his colleague, with whom they have done a lot to bring the Ukrainian-Hungarian relations from their peak and have Hungary's support in the EU and NATO.

"Therefore, when I found out that Peter fell ill with coronavirus, I immediately sent him a text message wishing him an early winning over the virus. Peter read and called back, thanked for the support. We had a good conversation about work, Covid-19, life and football. Surely, about the last fall in our relations as well,"  the minister said.

As we reported earlier, Ukraine has banned the entry of two officials from Hungary because of campaigning in Zakarpattia region during the electoral process in the local elections held in the country.
