The Hungarian minister briefed the forum on his talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, MTI reported. Szijjártó said that the two countries are committed to expanding bilateral business ties with a focus on water management and IT and noted planned bilateral water management, education and trade agreements, according to MTI.
Szijjártó reportedly said that Hungary does not support the labeling of products bound for European markets that are made in Israeli-occupied territories, as outlined in fresh guidelines issued by the European Commission, as such a measure goes against “common senses” and could result in the loss of Palestinian jobs, MTI reported.
