Prime Minister Viktor Orbán held talks with new Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Brasilia over the past two days.
Orbán, who paid a working visit to Brazil to attend the inauguration ceremony of the new president on Tuesday, held talks with Bolsonaro on opportunities for international, economic and political cooperation between the two countries, the prime minister’s press chief said. At the talks, Orbán confirmed an invitation to Bolsonaro for a visit to Hungary, which the Brazilian president accepted, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.
An upcoming Israel-Visegrad Group summit to be held in Jerusalem in early 2019 was on the agenda of talks between Orbán and his Israeli counterpart. The two prime ministers reviewed current issues in Hungary-Israel relations. They agreed to tighten cooperation in security policy and defence between Hungary and Israel in the upcoming period.
