FM: Dialogue with Ukraine’s new leaders is easier than the last

Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said both sides are interested in good neighborly relations and in restoring links to the same level where they were a few years ago.

The Foreign Minister has said dialogue with Ukraine’s new leaders is easier than it was with the previous leadership.

Following talks with Ukrainian counterpart Vadym Prystaiko in New York on Thursday, Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said both sides are interested in good neighborly relations and in restoring links to the same level where they were a few years ago.

According to MTI, Prystaiko expressed openness to discussing any issue in bilateral relations in a flexible way. Minister Szijjártó said the meeting had been characterized by a “positive and constructive atmosphere”.

“It took us closer to being able to talk about a new beginning in Ukraine-Hungary relations in the not too distant future,” the Minister said.

Minister Szijjártó expressed hope that once both sides express a constructive attitude to dialogue, they will arrive at results that ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia will find satisfactory. Hungary will make every effort to ensure that relations between the two countries improve, he added.
