Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expressed his satisfaction with regard to the fact that the joint projects determined within the framework of bilateral and V4-Israeli cooperation have begun and are moving forward according to schedule.

The prime minister also assured Benjamin Netanyahu that Hungary remains committed to the further reinforcement of political, economic and cultural relations between the two countries.
