Budapest, February 21 (MTI) – Hungary is exploring the opportunities to make up for agricultural deliveries to Iran that have been held up from Ukraine because of the political unrest there, rural development minister Sandor Fazekas told MTI on Friday.
The idea was raised on Thursday by Iran’s ambassador to Hungary at a meeting with local businessmen in Debrecen (E Hungary)
It is too early to go into details but Hungary has got farm products of outstanding quality, and the Eastern and Middle-Eastern markets are especially important for it, he said.
The Iranian ambassador mentioned maize, agricultural machinery and spare parts as products Iran is interested in buying from Hungary.
The rural development ministry noted in a statement that the EU does not have an embargo against Iran on agricultural trade, and export permits are given instantly.
