External Affairs Minister Jaishankar Holds "Productive" Meeting With Hungarian Counterpart
The Indian Embassy in Hungary said that Jaishankar's visit is a major boost for India-Hungary bilateral relations.
Jaishankar held talks with Foreign Minister of Hungary Peter Szijjarto followed by delegation-level talks in Budapest.
"Happy to be back in Budapest. Good memories, great future," Jaishankar tweeted, recalling his stint as Counsellor (Commercial) at the Indian mission in Budapest from 1990 to 1993.
"Thank FM Peter Szijjarto for a very positive and productive meeting. Look forward to developing ties with Hungary and Visegrad Group. Will work closely on bilateral cooperation and in the multilateral arena," he said on his Twitter handle.
The Visegrad Group is a cultural and political alliance of four Central European states - the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, that are members of the European Union (EU) and NATO.
The Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar earlier tweeted that both the leaders had a brief tete-a-tete, followed by delegation level talks where bilateral and multilateral issues were discussed.
Jaishankar, along with Szijjarto, also addressed the Hungarian Annual Ambassadors' Conference.
"Privileged to address the Hungarian Ambassadors' Conference at the invitation of FM Peter Szijjarto. An engaging interaction on the state of the world," he said.
