Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó met with his British counterpart, James Cleverly, in London on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
After the meeting, Szijjártó told Hungarian public media that the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union was an "enormous loss" for the EU and the "damages should be minimized".
To achieve that, Brussels must realize that a "reasonable, efficient cooperation, based on mutual respect" is necessary between the European Union and the United Kingdom, he added.
"A closer cooperation with the Brits would help the European Union be stronger and more competitive," he added.
Szijjártó said Hungary would gladly continue consultations in Brussels that seek to resolve disputes between London and Brussels as soon as possible.
