"Glad to meet my Hungarian colleague Péter Szijjártó in Kyiv today. We are reviving the Ukrainian-Hungarian intergovernmental economic commission after almost 7 years of pause. Time to unlock the true potential of economic cooperation between Ukraine and Hungary," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba wrote on Twitter on June 25, 2020.

The Ukrainian foreign minister also posted a photo from a meeting with his Hungarian counterpart.

A meeting of the Joint Intergovernmental Ukrainian-Hungarian Commission on Economic Cooperation will be held in Kyiv on Thursday.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 29, Kuleba paid a visit to Budapest to meet with Szijjártó.

Following the meeting, he said that together with his Hungarian counterpart he would recommend Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to hold a meeting in Kyiv in July.

Kuleba said Ukraine offered that a document be signed with Hungary fixing that ethnic Hungarians represent "historical and cultural heritage" of Zakarpattia region, not its "problem."

In turn, Szijjártó said the three joint commissions of Ukraine and Hungary in June should agree on steps that will resolve disputed issues in relations between two countries.
