Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó has said the meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will depend on the success of the meeting of the intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation, which is to be held in Budapest in March.
"We will hold another meeting of the intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation in Budapest in March," Szijjártó said at a joint press conference with Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Dmytro Kuleba in Kyiv, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
He also agreed with Kuleba that the situation was unacceptable where the commission had not held meetings for seven years already.
"We want to succeed in the negotiations in March and thus agree to build at least one checkpoint at the border," the Hungarian foreign minister said.
"If the meeting of the intergovernmental commission is successful, it will also pave the way for holding a meeting between Hungarian Prime Minister Orban and President Zelensky in the spring," Szijjártó added.
