Iran, Hungary call for enhanced bilateral cooperation

Belgrade, Sept 3, IRNA – Deputy Foreign Minister for Euro-American Affairs Majid Takht-e Ravanchi and Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen, in a meeting in Budapest on Thursday, discussed further promotion of bilateral relations.

During the meeting, the Iranian official presented the invitation letter of First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri for Hungarian Prime minister Victor Orban for an official visit of Iran.
Semjen welcomed the invitation for the Hungarian prime minister to Iran, saying that bilateral relations between Tehran and Budapest have entered a new phase that requires mutual efforts of both sides to promote cooperation in all areas.
He said that Orban’s visit of Tehran would be of special significance because in this visit the two countries would sign agreements on cultural, political, economic and tourism issues, as well as avoiding double-taxation.
Meanwhile, Takht-e Ravanchi said that Iran and Hungary enjoy abundant cultural commonalities that would very much help the promotion of relations between the two countries.
Takht-e Ravanchi also touched upon a nuclear deal reached between Iran and the six world powers on July 24 in Vienna and said that the Vienna deal was a win-win agreement.
‘We concluded the negotiations and showed the international community that we are transparent in our nuclear program and have nothing to hide,’ he said.
