Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó discussed migration and bilateral cooperation with Elly Tumwine, Uganda’s security minister, in Budapest on Monday.
Mass migration coming from Africa can only be prevented in future by providing sufficient development aid to countries in that continent, Szijjártó told reporters after the meeting.
Hungary will contribute its part according to its available resources, he said.
This year, an economic development programme with a budget of 5.16 million forints (EUR 15,000) was launched in Uganda, he said.
In an other form of cooperation Hungarian companies will set up a cyber-security centre and install a biometric personal identification system, Szijjártó said.
As we wrote today, Szijjártó held talks with Laotian Deputy Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone in Budapest. The Hungarian government is launching a 160 million dollar tied aid programme to support Hungarian companies working on development projects in Laos, he said.
