Szijjártó to meet British counterpart during visit to Slovakia
Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó will have bilateral talks with British foreign minister Philip Hammond on Hungary-UK ties and economic cooperation during a visit in Slovakia today, a foreign ministry announcement of the visit says.
Keeping energy strategy in the national sphere of action will be high on the agenda of the talks, the announcement said, adding that the two ministers will also discuss stands taken in the European Union, with special attention to the fact that Hungary and the UK have recently been in agreement on some EU issues.
Szijjártó will meet Hammond on the sidelines of a meeting of his counterparts from the Visegrad Four countries and from the Western Balkans, in Bratislava today. Szijjártó will also have bilateral talks with the foreign ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic, Albania and Serbia, the document added.
The foreign minister will also attend the opening ceremony of a new business center at the Hungarian embassy in Bratislava, aimed at assisting Hungary's small and medium-size enterprises with business opportunities abroad. Szijjártó's first official visit abroad in his current capacity was in Bratislava on October 7.
