Hungary will promote US Middle East policy in the European Union, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Facebook after meeting President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner in Washington, DC, on Tuesday. Szijjártó was the only EU foreign minister to attend the signing ceremony of the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Referring to previous talks with energy secretary Dan Brouillette, the minister noted: “Hungary’s natural gas will be supplied amid new circumstances from the start of next year with the construction of an LNG terminal in Croatia and a gas purchase agreement with a non-Russian company.” Shell will be supplying 250 million cubic meters of gas to Hungary each year for the next six years, he added. Hungary has already hooked up its gas pipeline network to those of six out of seven of its neighbouring countries. A connection with Slovenia has yet to be established, he added.
