(MTI) – The foreign ministers of Hungary and Canada will meet in Ottawa in two weeks’ time, the first occasion in the last 13 years at this diplomatic level, the foreign ministry’s spokeswoman said on Saturday.
Judit Fulop noted that Peter Szijjarto will visit the Canadian capital after an official visit to Washington, DC. He will have talks with his counterpart John Baird.
In the course of his visit, Szijjarto will take part in an October 23 commemoration in Toronto and give a speech to locals of Hungarian origin.
The last time a Hungarian foreign minister had talks with his Canadian counterpart was in 2001, when Janos Martonyi paid a visit to the country.
Fulop noted in a statement that bilateral trade was worth almost 920 million dollars last year, making Canada Hungary’s 31st most important trading partner.
