Hungary talks strategic partnership with Azerbaijan

Int’l Relations

Hungary and Azerbaijan intend to sign a strategic partnership agreement, and talks on the matter will begin next week in Budapest, during Azerbaijan's president, Ilham Alíyev’s visit to Hungary, Hungarian external economics and foreign minister Péter Szijjártó told MTI on Monday from the Azeri capital, Baku.

“The fastest developing and strongest economy in the Caucasus region, Azerbaijan wants to expand trade and investment relations with Hungary, and this serves Hungary's interest, also," Szijjártó said.

Simultaneous to talks on strategic partnership, Hungary and Azerbaijan will also sign agreements on air traffic which will be followed by Wizz Air relaunching its Budapest-Baku flight next March, on cooperation in higher education, allowing 200 Azeri students to study in Hungary, on cooperation in sport and youth matters, and on tourism, Szijjártó said.
