The next step in advancing Hungarian-Azeri relations is boosting economic cooperation between the two countries, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in Baku on Monday after meeting Azeri President Ilham Aliyev.
At the talks with Aliyev in the presidential palace, Orbán said Hungary has already launched investment projects in Azerbaijan, adding that the opportunities for further bilateral cooperation looked “very promising”.
The prime minister added that it was always an honour for Hungarians to visit Baku, expressing his appreciation for the Azeri people’s positive attitude towards Hungarians.
Orbán and Aliyev also discussed current European affairs.
Orbán is in Baku for a meeting of the Turkic Council to be held on Tuesday.
The Turkic Council’s founding members are Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. Hungary has had observer status in the organisation since 2018.
