Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s introductory remarks during talks with Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto, Moscow, March 18, 2020
My dear Peter,
We are delighted to welcome you to Moscow.
The global situation remains complicated, due to the coronavirus pandemic, but life must go on. We are grateful for this opportunity to exchange views on the status of our bilateral relations under the agreements that were reached during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Budapest in October 2019 and to assess the international and regional situation in the context of the latest developments.
