Hungary and Uzbekistan have agreed to boost bilateral economic relations, President Katalin Novák said after talks with Shavkat Mirziyoyev, her Uzbek counterpart, in Budapest on Tuesday.
At their meeting at the presidential Sándor Palace, the two heads of state also agreed on the importance of peace and security as well as to do everything in their power to support parents raising children, Novák said on Facebook. She noted that there has not been peace in Uzbekistan’s neighbouring country, Afghanistan, for years, and now there is a war going on in Hungary’s neighbour, Ukraine. Novák said Hungary was “the centre for economic cooperation between the West and the East”. She said Hungary and Uzbekistan will strengthen their economic ties, particularly in the areas of energy, finance and the health industry. She also highlighted the importance of family when it came to the future of both nations, saying that the two countries were doing their utmost to support parents raising children. Novák welcomed that President Mirziyoyev intended to open an embassy in Budapest, and said she had accepted his invitation to Tashkent.
The Uzbek president later also held talks with Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
