Germany is Hungary’s most important economic partner and a strategic ally in a number of areas, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said after talks with his German counterpart Heiko Maas in Budapest on Monday.
At a joint press conference with Maas, Szijjarto said whereas the two countries disagreed on key issues such as “combatting migration”, they had spent more time on matters they agreed on.
Hungary and Germany are allies in the areas of defence and the economy as well as the issue of European Union enlargement and developing the regions migrants are fleeing, Szijjarto said.
Maas emphasised the importance of maintaining bilateral dialogue, adding that despite disagreements, the two countries should find common ground.
