H.E. Mr. Sirojiddin Muhriddin on the outcomes of the meeting with

the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary

H.E. Mr. Péter Szijjártó


Dear representatives of mass media!

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Our meetings with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary, H.E. Mr. Péter Szijjártó, have been traditionally held in an atmosphere of friendship, constructiveness and mutual understanding. Today we discussed issues of bilateral, regional and multilateral cooperation.

Few minutes ago, another round of regular political consultations between Tajikistan and Hungary took place.

As a result of political consultations, the Program of Cooperation between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of two countries for 2022-2024 was adopted.

We exchanged views on the current situation related to Covid-19 pandemic and the joint fight against it, and also discussed aspects of cooperation between the two countries in the political, economic, environmental, tourism, scientific, cultural, medical and sports spheres. Mutual interest was expressed in improving the legal framework in order to expand the content of multifaceted relations between Tajikistan and Hungary.

We intend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Tajikistan and Hungary in 2022 and have planned to organize scientific and cultural events in this regard.

During the meeting, cooperation between Tajikistan and the European Union was also considered.

While discussing bilateral relations in a multilateral format, we expressed satisfaction with the cooperation and coordination of positions within the framework of international organizations, in particular the UN, in the field of water resources, as well as the fight against terrorism and extremism.

Within the framework of this visit, meetings of my Hungarian colleague are planned in other governmental structures of the Republic of Tajikistan, including the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources and the General Prosecutor's Office, as well as several official documents will be signed.

In the afternoon, the opening ceremony of the office of the Honorary Consul of Hungary in Tajikistan will take place.

It is also worth noting that a business forum was held this morning with the participation of Tajik and Hungarian entrepreneurs.

Therefore, with my colleague Mr. Péter Szijjártó we expressed satisfaction with the current level of relations and stressed the need for further cooperation.

Now I would like to give the floor to H.E. Mr. Péter Szijjártó - the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary.

I thank you!
