SZIJJÁRTÓ: HUNGARY WANTS CLOSER BRAZIL TIES

Hungary wants to develop "the closest ever" ties with Brazil, since the two countries' leaders share very similar approaches to global politics, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told a joint press conference with counterpart Ernesto Araújo.
 

Szijjártó added that “this exceptional political understanding” should be used to achieve mutual economic benefits.
Brazil and Hungary attach great importance to the issue of security, to stopping illegal migration, respecting sovereignty and protecting Christian communities around the world, Szijjártó said.
The Hungarian government approved a resolution and strategic proposal in March to place its relations with Brazil on new foundations, he said, adding that the conditions were in place to achieve this goal. Brazil, he noted, is Hungary’s second largest trading partner in South America. New agreements on agricultural research, product accreditation and cooperation in water management will greatly contribute to developing economic cooperation even further, he added.
Commenting on political cooperation within the United Nations, Szijjártó said both countries rejected the UN’s global migration compact, regarding it as “a very dangerous document”. Hungary and Brazil agree that it is every country’s sovereign right to decide whom they allow to enter their territory.
