“It’s no exaggeration to say that 2021 was the most successful year for Hungarian-Russian relations yet because of vaccines shipments and the conclusion of a long-term gas supply agreement,” the Foreign Minister wrote on social media on Thursday after meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Stockholm.

Péter Szijjártó wrote that he had once again taken advantage of the opportunity to review the most important points of cooperation with Sergei Lavrov.

A five-point action plan will guide the government so that 2022 is at least as successful as this year has been, the minister said:

Our goals are to start the construction phase of [nuclear power plant] Paks next year, begin production of the Sputnik vaccine in the National Vaccine Factory, increase the number of container trains entering Záhony [on the Ukrainian border] following the launch of our railway joint venture on December 16, finalize our joint space research projects, and provide even more Hungarian agricultural products with the opportunity to enter the Russian market.
