Szijjártó will hold a number of bilateral talks while in Washington, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tradeʼs press chief told MTI on Sunday. One of the meetings will be with White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner who played a significant role in drafting the peace plan.
Szijjártó said in a message posted on Facebook on Saturday that Hungary continues to back the efforts made to achieve peace in the Middle East and advocates fair assessments of countries in the region by international organizations.
