In the afternoon of the 19th of October 2017, and at the request of the H.E. Peter Kivek, Hungary’s Ambassador to Egypt, the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs (ECFA) has received H.E. Zoltan Marky, Deputy Director of Planning at Hungary’s Foreign Ministry, accompanied by Hungary’s Deputy Ambassador to Egypt.
The Hungarian visitor inquired on the current developments both in Egypt and in the Middle East, referring to the session of rich discussions that was held by Hungary’s National Security Adviser with members of the Council at the advent of the 2017.
Egypt’s former Ambassadors to Hungary, H.E Ambassador Ali El-Hefny and H.E. Ambassador Hesham El-Zimaity, responded to the guest’s inquiries. This comes especially against the backdrop that Hungary was the first European Union Member State to support Egypt’s 30th of June Revolution, and to openly express its support to the People of Egypt in its revolt against the fascist rule, that has earnestly sought to obliterate Egypt’s Identity.
The two ECFA Board Members pointed out that the special relationship between President Al-Sisi of Egypt and Hungary’s Prime Minister, Victor Urban had opened up horizons for increased prospective cooperation between the two States both in political and economic fields as well as in the area of technical education.
ECFA Board Members also presented an assessment of the situation in Gaza and Libya and on the relations with Sudan and Ethiopia within the context of construction of the “An-Nahdah – Renaissance” Dam. For his part, the Hungarian guest reviewed Hungary’s policies within the European Union and its keenness to maintain a margin of independence and prevent any party from interfering in its internal affairs.
