Hungary expressed its support for Egypt in the latter’s fight against terrorism and praised Egyptian efforts to achieve regional stability, during President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi’s visit to the country from 4-6 June.
On Friday, Al-Sisi met with László Kövér, head of the Hungarian Parliament, and with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, according to a statement by the Egyptian presidency.
Kövér expressed his hope to support relations between the two countries, after parliamentary elections in Egypt take place, which will contribute to more stability in Egypt.
The parliamentary elections were scheduled to take place last March, but were postponed indefinitely.
Al-Sisi and Orbán discussed both countries’ mutual desire to maintain and deepen cooperation in the political, economic, cultural and scientific fields.
Hungary welcomed the progress Egypt has made in the political transition process, and stressed its support for Egypt in its fight against terrorism.
The situation in Libya was also discussed, where both countries expressed their support for legitimate Libyan institutions including the government in Tobruk led by Abdallah Al-Thinni.
The visit came following Al-Sisi’s visit to Germany, where he met German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Al-Sisi and Merkel discussed the situation in the region, combating terrorism, civil society organisations and their role in Egypt.
