Szijjártó held a joint briefing today with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba in Kiev. 

At the briefing, he recalled that only the Záhony-Chop checkpoint is currently operating. He said that the decision to open all checkpoints is aimed at reducing waiting times and eliminating long queues.

Szijjártó noted that while the checkpoints will be open, it will be possible to cross the border, although the rules for entering other countries will remain in place.
