Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Tuesday with Jozsef Czukor, senior foreign policy adviser to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Haaretz reported.
According to the newspaper, they discussed the possibility that Israel will host a meeting of the Visegrad Group. “If Netanyahu’s efforts bear fruit and the summit is held in Israel, it will mark a new level in relations with these Central European counties, whose governments are considered the most right-wing in Europe. This would be particularly important in the case of Poland, which recently passed a law forbidding any mention of the Polish nation’s involvement in Nazi crimes”, Haaretz noted.
Before meeting with Netanyahu, Czukor discussed developments in the region, cooperation against terrorism and strengthening bilateral relations on security and other issues with Israeli National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat.
In July 2017, Netanyahu participated in the Visegrad summit held in Budapest.
