The victory of right-wing parties in Austria is good news for Hungary because in cooperation with “Austrian politicians who are not tied up by hypocrisy” there will be an opportunity to give real responses to the historical challenges facing Europe, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Tuesday.
Szijjarto held consultations by phone with his Austrian counterpart Karin Kneissl after the new Austrian government had been formed, the ministry said in a statement.
Kneissl and Szijjarto confirmed that they were looking forward to working together and they were in agreement that the new composition of the Austrian government would open a new era in the development of Austrian-Hungarian strategic cooperation.
It was agreed that Kneissl would pay an official visit in Budapest in early 2018, the statement said.
