Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó met with his Romanian counterpart Bogdan Aurescu in Gyula, a Hungarian city on the border, on Wednesday, news agency MTI reports.
At a press conference, the sides signed an agreement modifying earlier ones that Szijjártó said would make it easier to cross the border between the two countries.
He said two new continuously operating border crossings would be opened in nearby Dombegyház and Elek, raising the number of crossings from 12 to 14. Hungary will build the necessary infrastructure as required under the Schengen Treaty, he added.
Aurescu noted that bilateral trade between Romania and Hungary reached EUR 9 bln last year.
