The minister told Kossuth Rádió on Sunday that Hungary has been able to successfully work with Russia and both countries are “mobilizing significant resources to protect Christian culture and communities” and that Hungary. Two examples of this cooperation are jointly rebuilding a monastery in Syria and co-financing the construction of a bakery to ensure that the inhabitants of one city have bread.
The two countries announced other industrial cooperation agreements as well, such as an order worth more than $1 billion for Hungarian railway wagons – the largest-ever foreign order for Hungarian railway vehicles – to be shipped to Egypt and the modernization of the MAHART hydrofoil river boats.
The topic of Hungary dominated the talks, and FM Szijjártó was pleased to say that for the first time ever, Hungary’s gas reservoirs are almost completely full – a welcome development for a country dependent on foreign imports. Negotiations for next winter are also already underway.
On other fronts, pharmaceutical company Richter will benefit from a $15 million investment, as one of its main products will now be accepted by Russian social security. Hungary has also been successful with investments in animal feed, food, and agriculture.
