Hungary to promote Chinese relations in Europe

Hungary is ready to promote the development of Europe-China relations as a whole through the platform of cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European countries, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing, China Daily reported on Friday.
Orbán, who visited China to hold bilateral talks and to attend the second international forum of the Belt and Road Initiative, pledged support for the initiative, which he said he sees as "an opportunity rather than a threat".

Orbán said the Hungarian government and people cherish the extraordinary friendship with China, adding that Hungary is optimistic about China's high-tech development and welcomes investment from China.

China and Hungary should carry out cooperation within the Belt and Road framework, including the Hungary-Serbia railway, and strive for more concrete outcomes, Xi said in the meeting according to the report.

Xi noted that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and China looks forward to working with Hungary to bring the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership to a new level.

It is important for both countries to bolster pragmatic cooperation to achieve win-win outcomes and expand people-to-people exchanges, Xi added.
