The spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Oleh Nikolenko, said this in a commentary to Suspilne.
According to him, the meeting is preliminarily scheduled for January 29.
"On January 29, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and Head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermak are scheduled to meet with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto in Uzhhorod," Nikolenko said.
He noted that these talks will be a continuation of recent political contacts between the two countries and will focus on organizing a meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, which is necessary "to promote decisions important for Ukraine in the European Union and the comprehensive development of bilateral relations."
- On December 7, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó and Head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermák suggested that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy might meet with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
- On December 21, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced that he had accepted an invitation from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to hold a bilateral meeting, which would be the first between the two leaders since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
- The Presidential Administration later said it was working on a meeting between Zelenskyy and Orban in the "near future."
