Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó met with deputy head of Chinaʼs National Development and Reform Commission Wang Xiaotao for talks on the upgrade of the Budapest-Belgrade rail line yesterday, the foreign ministry said, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.

The sides agreed that a legal solution must be worked out that will bring the investment in full compliance with European rules, the ministry said. 

China is financing 85% of the HUF 472 billion cost of the upgrade, which will make the line part of a corridor for bringing Chinese goods to Europe.
