    “At the start of the Hungarian presidency of the Visegrad Group, we discussed the most important issues for our region,” Minister Witold Waszczykowski said after a meeting in Budapest.

    The meeting in Budapest of foreign ministers of the Visegrad Group plus Austria, Croatia and Slovenia focused on infrastructure, the conflict in Ukraine, and the situation in the Western Balkans.
     


    The head of the Polish MFA emphasised the need for developing energy, technical and internet infrastructure linking our region.  Cooperation has been getting closer, also in the context of the recent summit of the Three Seas initiative in Warsaw. “We want to promote the projects that are already under way, like the LNG terminal in Swinoujscie, and to map out the future infrastructure cooperation along the North-South axis,” the chief of Polish diplomacy underlined at the meeting.


     
    Later, the ministers spoke to Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. The meeting in Budapest was held as part of the Hungarian presidency of the Visegrad Group, which started on 1 July. The format of V4 meetings with the countries of wider Central Europe is intended to build synergies and enhance cooperation.
