Hungarians and Germans continue to maintain a close friendship and cooperation covering many areas, such as defence policy and digitalisation, Justice Minister Judit Varga after talks in Berlin.

The 30th anniversary of Hungary opening its borders which also paved the way for German reunification and the unification of Europe “offers a good opportunity to remark that our nations have been linked by close friendship spanning hundreds of years,” Varga told public media after meeting senior German politicians and attending a meeting of the Hungarian-German Forum.

She said the forum was important because it involved “political opponents sitting down for talks and discussing their differences”. Commenting on migration policy, she said “it is now being understood in German mainstream politics that emphasis should be placed on resolving problems on the spot” and “joint development projects can be successful in preventing migration”.
