Denis Manturov and Alexander Novak held a meeting with Péter Szijjártó

Denis Manturov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia, and Alexander Novak, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, met with Peter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary, as part of Russian Energy Week.

During the meeting, the parties discussed issues of cooperation in the trade and economic sphere, as well as priority projects of industrial cooperation.

"It is pleasing that Russian Energy Week, as well as the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, has become a traditional occasion for your visit to Russia," Denis Manturov said at the beginning of the meeting.

"Hungary, despite the need to fulfil its bloc obligations, remains, in fact, the only EU country firmly defending its national interests, including its sovereign position in the dialogue with Moscow. For our part, we highly appreciate the balanced and objective foreign policy line of the Hungarian leadership and are firmly determined to further develop cooperation with Hungary," Alexander Novak emphasized.

The Russian Energy Week International Forum is a key global platform for discussing current trends in the development of the modern fuel and energy sector. This event is traditionally held at the highest level, featuring the participation of leaders from the largest companies in the energy industry. In 2022, more than 70 events, with the involvement of over 270 speakers, were held as part of REW. The Forum attracted over 3,000 participants and media representatives from Russia, as well as 83 foreign countries and territories. The Forum is organized by the Roscongress Foundation and the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, with the support of the Moscow City Government.
