Budapest, November 25 (MTI) – Prime Minister Viktor Orban met Li Keqiang, his Chinese counterpart, for bilateral talks in Suzhou, Orban’s press chief told MTI on Wednesday.
At the talks, Orban spoke highly of an excellent cooperation between the two countries and noted that China had been crucial in Hungary’s coping with the economic crisis five years ago.
Hungary is interested in building a “multipolar world order” and supports the “closest possible” cooperation between the European Union and China, the prime minister’s press office quoted Orban as saying.
At the talks, Orban proposed that Hungarian food exports to China should be increased.
Both parties called the Budapest-Belgrade railway project one of strategic importance, while the possibility of launching further flights between Hungary and China was also raised.
