KAZAN, August 9. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday relations between Russia and Hungary are good, despite the European anti-Russian sanctions.
"Despite the current common problems with the European Union, our relations with Hungary are stable and friendly," he said at a meeting with his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban, who arrived in Kazan to take over as host of the next FINA World Championships.
"We are living in a difficult time, but our position is that, despite all the troubles, Hungary has managed to preserve all the good we have in our relations," Orban said, promising to keep to that tendency in future. "Hungary will be a good partner to Russia in what concerns peace issues," he pledged.
Medvedev noted that Russia and Hungary "are collaborating in various areas - from the energy sector to agriculture." "We hope it will be advantageous for both our countries and our peoples," he underscored.
The Russian prime minister said his today’s meeting with the Hungarian counterpart at the aquatics championships was a good opportunity to discuss current topical problems. "You have a special mission - the next aquatics championships will be held in Hungary," Medvedev said.
Orban, in turn, praised the championships in Kazan for its perfect organization and thanked for the invitation to visit that city.
