Budapest (MTI) – Justice Minister Laszlo Trocsanyi has met top Algerian officials to discuss the possibility of boosting bilateral ties, his ministry said on Tuesday.
During an official visit to Algeria, Trocsanyi held talks with Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal and National Assembly President Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa, the presidents of the constitutional court, the supreme court and the state council as well as Algeria’s chief public prosecutor, the ministry said in a statement.
The minister and his partners agreed that restarting close cooperation between the two countries would be highly important. Hungary and Algeria had cooperated very intensively until the early 90s.
Hungarian specialists are most welcome to return to Algeria, primarily in the construction, info-communication, education and farming sectors, he said.
Trocsanyi signed a cooperation agreement with the Algerian justice ministry and discussed prospects of an exchange of experts, the ministry said.
The minister and his Algerian partners also discussed topical international affairs, including migration and the fight against terrorism.
As part of his programme, the minister gave a talk before an audience of 300 judges at the judicial academy and also opened an exhibition on famous Hungarian Orientalists at the University of Algiers.
