Relations between Hungary and the United Kingdom have evolved in an era when both countries were members of the EU. However, this period has ended and Brexit is over, so our task now is to establish the means of our post-Brexit co-operation, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in London on Fiday, after holding bilateral discussions with PM Boris Johnson in Downing Street.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Hungary’s premier said his talks with Mr Johnson primarily had focused on the future course of bilateral relations between Hungary and the UK, adding that they had also touched on the possibilities of co-operation between Central European countries, mainly between the members of the Visegrad Group and Britain.

During the meeting the energy and defence industries have emerged as two particularly promising areas of the two countries’ bilateral ties, Mr Orban said.

He recalled that Shell was the first non-Russian energy company with which Hungary concluded a long-term gas purchase agreement.
