Prime Minister Viktor Orbán discussed the dangers of migration, Hungarian-Brazilian economic ties and the protection of Christian values with Brazilian congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro in his office.
Orbán and Bolsonaro were in agreement that their countries saw eye-to-eye on key political and strategic issues. They noted that Hungary and Brazil both rejected the United Nations’ global migration compact. Both countries consider the representation of Christian values and national interests in foreign policy to be important and both reject the exertion of political pressure by “NGOs disguised as civil organisations”, they said.
Parties at the talks highlighted farming technology, water management and the health industry as the primary areas of bilateral cooperation. The two countries will also bolster their research ties, they noted, adding that Hungary has pledged to increase the number of scholarships offered to Brazilian students.
On Wednesday, Bolsonaro met Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó. Szijjártó told public radio ahead of the meeting that trade turnover between the two countries exceeded 400 million dollars last year, which the minister called a good basis for bilateral cooperation.
