Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó held talks with Baghdad Amreyev, Secretary General of the Turkic Council, on Tuesday to discuss relations between the two nations.
According to the foreign ministry, the Hungarian government’s opening to the East policy plays a vital role in the country’s foreign policy.
Hungary’s trade turnover with Turkey and the countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus region has expanded dynamically in recent years, and more and more students from that region are applying for Hungarian scholarships.
A foreign ministry statement highlighted that the Turkic Council’s chamber of commerce is ready to welcome Hungary to the organization, just as the Turkic University Association is open to welcoming Hungarian universities.
During the talks, Minister Szijjártó said that Hungary was ready for the Turkic Council to set up its European representative office in Budapest.
