MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. Hungary expects to work with Russia more and better than before, the country’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said at the meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on Monday.
"We expect that international processes will contribute to developing the Russian-Hungarian relations," Szijjarto stressed, noting that the bilateral ties were affected by sanctions. "At the same time, this situation showed that it is necessary to pay more attention to developing trade relations that we agreed to boost in the near future."
"This is already happening and the focus will be made on the Hungarian investments in Russia’s agricultural sector and machine building industry," he added.
Lavrov said "there is no limit to perfection." The Russian foreign minister said the talks with Szijjarto will contribute to the preparations for the meeting between the two leaders in early February in Budapest. "An important work needs to be done," he said.
