The Hungarian government supports expanding the Abraham Accords which normalized Israel’s relations with several Arab states, Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said after speaking with Eli Kohen, his Israeli counterpart, on the telephone.
Based on the experience of the past decades, the Accords is the first initiative that can be instrumental in establishing peace in the Middle East, Minister Szijjártó said on Facebook, adding that at the talks initiated by Kohen, they had also reviewed the region’s security situation. “I assured my Israeli colleague that Hungary continues to support a fair and balanced approach to Israel in international forums,” Minister Szijjártó said. He also said that economic cooperation served the interests of both countries and would be further developed. They agreed that the Israeli foreign minister would soon pay an official visit to Budapest.
