Szijjártó, Jordanian deputy PM discuss cooperation


Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó discussed cooperation in higher education with Jordanian Deputy Prime Minister Amin Mahmud in Budapest yesterday, the foreign ministry's press chief said. The two officials agreed on broadening the scope of the Hungarian-Jordanian agreement on higher-education grants, said Judit Fülöp.

There are 53 Jordanian students currently studying in Hungarian higher education and the enrolment of another 226 is under way, she said. Szijjártó offered his partner, who is also minister in charge of higher education and science research, the opportunity for most of the Jordanian students forced to leave Ukraine due to the armed conflict there to continue their studies in Hungary.

Fülöp said that talks started on Wednesday with Jordan's atomic energy committee on the possibility of training 800-1,000 Jordanian nuclear engineers in Hungary. This follows Jordan's recent decision, similar to Hungary's, to build a nuclear power plant in cooperation with Russia's Rosatom.
