The first agreement that was signed – on mutual training of diplomatic personnel, the second – on the recognition of documents on education and degrees. The latter should facilitate the training or employment of Ukrainian citizens in Hungary and Hungarians in Ukraine.
“These agreements are very useful for both countries, for both nations. We really made many important steps – the recognition of diplomas and scientific degrees. This issue has been discussed for 7 years. As for the memorandum on the education of diplomatic personnel, this will also increase confidence. And it is needed, so that we can solve complex issues,” – said the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade of Hungary, Peter Szijjártó.
The heads of diplomatic missions of Ukraine and Hungary held a meeting, where they discussed, among other things, the settlement of the conflict in Donbas. After, they went to the contact line in eastern Ukraine.
“The visit to the Joint Forces Operation is an important sign that the Russian-Ukrainian armed conflict remains the biggest threat to the security of Europe and is in the focus of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe,” said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
Peter Szijjártó has already visited Ukraine more than once, but now he, in addition to the post of head of the Hungarian diplomatic department, holds the post of chairman of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry notes that this is the first visit of a diplomat of such a high level to Ukraine since 2014.
