Bucharest, Oct 2 /Agerpres/ - Romania will participate in a week, in Budapest, in the meeting of the countries of the Visegrad Group, our country being interested in the cooperation with these states, Foreign Minister Teodor Melescanu said on Monday in western Cluj-Napoca, after a working meeting with his Hungarian counterpart Péter Szijjártó.
"With Hungary's taking over the Presidency and tackling some topics that are of interest to Romania as well, such as the Balkans, we obviously have been invited to participate [in the meetings of the Visegrad Group]. In general, as a matter of practice, we participate whenever there are topics of interest to our country," said Minister Melescanu.
In his turn, Hungary's Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister Péter Szijjártó said that both the countries in the Visegrad group and Romania are recording a higher economic growth than the European average. The Hungarian minister has stated that under these conditions the collaboration relations are supposed to be tightened.
Our interest is for Romania to have a prosperous economy, as 5pct of Hungarian exports is coming to Romania. The better the economy of Romania works, the more we import.
We hope that the economic actors in Romania will be interested in Hungary. We have opened a 510 million-euro credit framework at the Hungarian Exim Bank to finance the bilateral co-operation between Hungarian and Romanian companies. Tightening the cooperation between the Visegrad countries and Romania is a pragmatic interest, not mentioning the fact that Romania also supports the enlargement of the EU to the Western Balkans, Szijjártó said.
The two foreign ministers held a meeting on Monday at the Babes-Bolyai University's Faculty of European Studies (UBB), with each of them having participated in the opening of the academic year of the Romanian line and the Hungarian one of the university in Cluj-Napoca.AGERPRES(RO - author: Elena Stanciu, editor: Marius Fratila; EN - author: Bogdan Gabaroi; editor: Maria Voican)
