Int’l Relations

Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov is scheduled to visit Hungary on May 25 on the invitation of Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó, according to Hungarian daily Magyar Idők.

The two ministers are expected to negotiate on the bilateral relationship between the two countries, as well as discuss Russiaʼs relationship with the European Union, according to the daily. The daily added that the two officials may discuss the approaching UN head secretary election as well as the cooperation of the EU and the Eurasian Economic Union. 

According to Hungarian online daily index.hu, the two officials could discuss sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU due to the Eastern-Ukrainian and Crimean crises, as Szijjártó has recently been vocal in his criticisms of the sanctions.
