Allowing communities along the border to foster their connections again can be a return in the direction of normalcy, Szijjártó said in a message posted on his Facebook page.

He welcomed measures by Austria and Slovakia to ease border restrictions and said Hungaryʼs government would soon discuss measures suitable for ensuring reciprocity.

Defending the lives and health of people is a priority, but eliminating disruptions to economic and trade ties is also important, he said.

As the Budapest Business Journal reported yesterday, Slovenia and Hungary have already started working on a plan to gradually ease border restrictions.
