Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjártó congratulated Qin Gang on his promotion as China's foreign minister, and his former counterpart Wang Yi on his appointment as head of the Chinese Communist Party's Central Foreign Affairs Commission on Friday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade told state news wire MTI.

In a letter to Qin Gang, Szijjarto pointed to a "series of milestone developments", including Hungary's Eastern Opening policy, China's Belt and Road Initiative, the Cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European Countries (China-CEEC Cooperation), and the establishment of the Belt and Road intergovernmental cooperation committee after a strategic partnership was formed between Hungary and China.

He highlighted the "broad partnership" between Hungary and China, their "outstanding" cooperation in economy and finance, and the significance of the relaunch of direct flights between the two countries.

He said both countries are in a good position to develop ties further. He also stressed that Hungary is interested in a "sensible" cooperation between China and the European Union, "based on mutual respect".

In a letter to Wang Yi, Szijjártó said bilateral relations between China and Hungary are "stronger than ever before", and acknowledged Wang Yi's efforts to foster cooperation in the areas of trade, investment, finance, and education.
