Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has expressed hope that the visit of South Korean President Moon Jae-in will further elevate ties between Hungary and the Republic of Korea.
During their meeting in Budapest on Wednesday, PM Orbán said he was pleased to learn that South Korea regards Hungary a prominent partner. “We are amazed to witness that South Korea with its fifty million inhabitants has become one of the world’s leading powers in technology,” PM Orbán said. He praised South Korean companies in Hungary for their “fantastic investments” and for their discipline as business partners. “We very much like cooperating with them,” he said.
Moon thanked Hungary’s help and action provided after a deadly boat collision on the River Danube which took the lives of many South Korean tourists three years ago. He said that the Hungarian prime minister had provided every possible means to help the search and rescue operations.
