Hungary and Brazil could start building bilateral ties “in all areas of life”, Zsolt Németh, the head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, told reporters on Thursday, after talks with Eduardo Bolsonaro, his Brazilian counterpart.
In May, the foreign minister of Brazil is scheduled to visit Hungary, while the Brazilian president could pay a visit later this year, Németh said.
Németh said that the two countries would elevate their joint economic committees to a ministerial level and launch a year-long Hungarian cultural programme in Brazil.
Concerning similarities between the two countries’ positions, Németh said that Brazil had also quit the United Nations’ Global Migration Pact. They also agreed regarding Venezuela, Németh said, and added that Hungary has recognised Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s president.
At the press conference, Bolsonaro highlighted the two countries’ shared values, congratulated Hungary on its migration policy and thanked the Hungarian government for the scholarship programme offered to Brazilian students at Hungarian universities.
The incumbent Brazilian president, “after decades of Socialist government”, is interested in deepening bilateral ties, said Bolsonaro.
Concerning the Brazilian foreign minister’s upcoming visit, he said that the two countries are scheduled to sign a number of agreements in various areas.
