The must-have newsletter about Hungary



Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Monday received Mikayil Jabbarov, Azerbaijan’s economy minister, in his office, with talks centred on energy cooperation, the PM’s press chief said in a statement. Hungary’s energy security has been enhanced thanks to Azeri natural gas storage in Hungary which began in July, Orbán said at the meeting attended by Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, and Márton Nagy, the minister of economic development. Several Hungarian companies are expanding in Azerbaijan, and more Hungarian investments there are also on the horizon, the statement noted.
Regarding the reconstruction of Karabakh, Azerbaijan has designated the settlement entrusted to Hungarian companies for reconstruction, it said. Orbán also noted the 200 scholarships Hungary offers to Azerbaijani students pursing their studies in Hungary.
