Szijjártó said restarting the economy meant resuming international cooperation, and this entailed easing border restrictions "without compromising the priority of peopleʼs health".
The minister noted that bilateral trade between Hungary and Slovenia exceeds EUR 2.5 billion a year.
"...We have begun work on the gradual lifting of the restrictive measures affecting the crossing of the border, with relation to which we have designated a target date of June 1," Szijjártó said.
