Szijjártó told the news agency that the two sides had agreed to expand the training of Iranian nuclear experts, set up research and development opportunities for the peaceful employment of nuclear energy, and assess how Hungarian companies can get involved in the extraction of Iranʼs hydrocarbon reserves in the future.

Iran’s vice president stressed the importance of developing Hungarian-Iranian relations following the conclusion of an international agreement last year to control Iran’s nuclear program, MTI reported.
