Hungary's FM: Peace and stability in Africa is important for Europe's security

Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said it’s especially important now when migration from that continent has not been easing at all

Hungary’s foreign minister has said that peace, stability and economic growth in Africa is extremely important for the future of Europe’s security.

Péter Szijjártó, minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said it’s especially important now when migration from that continent has not been easing at all.

The minister held talks with his Sudanese counterpart Ibrahim Ghandour in Budapest on Tuesday, and said that Europe has worked to boost cooperation with Sudan in the recent past and Sudanese diplomacy has significantly increased ties with Europe and the US.

The current task is to make the resulting advantages accessible to Hungarian companies, the minister said. He highlighted possibilities for Hungarian companies in Sudan in agriculture, water management, healthcare, infrastructure development and renewable energy technologies.

The minister also noted that there will be close cooperation between the two countries’ counter-terrorism agencies.
