During the talks in Budapest, the parties welcomed the continuation of the interdepartmental working group subgroups on education and noted the intention to sign in the near future an agreement on mutual recognition of documents on education and academic degrees between Ukraine and Hungary.
"Being committed to finding a mutually acceptable solution on sensitive issues regarding education and national minorities opens a window of opportunity for us to move these issues from the political to the expert level and normalize Ukrainian-Hungarian bilateral relations," said Zhovkva.
The interlocutors also discussed other issues, including the security situation. Zhovkva thanked Hungary for its unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
In January 2020, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban said that relations between Hungary and Ukraine could be changed through talks with president Volodymyr Zelenskyy. On 29 May, Ukrainian minister of foreign affairs Dmytro Kuleba conveyed through Szijjarto an official invitation from Zelenskyy to Orban to visit Ukraine.
