Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had talks with President of Azerbaijan

On Sunday in the Carmelite Monastery, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán received President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as part of a working visit, Bertalan Havasi, the Prime Minister’s press chief informed the Hungarian news agency MTI.

The talks centred around three topics which are connected to the security of Hungary and Europe. The parties spoke about issues related to energy supply, physical security, in particular, the war in Ukraine, and the overcoming of the present economic difficulties.

Similar to the talks conducted by Mr Orbán with the Turkmen president earlier, this meeting, too, fundamentally focused on issues of energy supply. This year, 100 million cubic metres of gas is coming from Azerbaijan, and an agreement has also been reached on the consignment storage of 50 million cubic metres in Hungary, meaning that an actual physical natural gas supply relationship has been established between the two countries, the parties concluded.

They highlighted that Hungary offers 200 scholarship grants to students from Azerbaijan who wish to study in Hungary.

President Aliyev will attend the celebrations of the 20 August national holiday and events of the World Athletics Championships currently being hosted in Budapest, Mr Havasi reported.
