Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto in Beijing on April 24 to discuss closer bilateral ties.

Wang, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said that China-Hungary relations, based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, enjoy a sound momentum of development with active exchanges and cooperation in various fields.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Hungary, and bilateral relations face important new opportunities, Wang noted, adding that China is willing to maintain close communication with Hungary, implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, and push bilateral relations to a higher level.

China appreciates Hungary's determination to deepen cooperation with China despite interference and pressure, Wang said, adding that the fruitful and mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Hungary in various fields not only benefits the two peoples, but also strongly proves that China is an opportunity rather than a challenge, a partner rather than an opponent to Europe.

Noting that Hungary will take over the rotating presidency of the European Union (EU) in the second half of this year, Wang said it is hoped that Hungary will promote the EU's rational and friendly view of China's development, pursue a more active and pragmatic policy towards China, strengthen strategic communication between China and Europe, and promote the sustained, stable and healthy development of China-EU relations.

Hungary is opposed to "decoupling and breaking the chain," and always believes that viewing China as a threat will only mean missing opportunities, and treating China as a partner is the right choice, Szijjarto said.

Hungary is willing to promote the construction of key projects under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, continuously deepen the mutually beneficial cooperation between Hungary and China in various fields, push bilateral relations to a new level and promote the steady and sound development of EU-China relations, Szijjarto added.
