The Index also reported that Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Affairs, traveled to Sochi, Russia, on Monday morning, where he presented the four basic principles of the Hungarian energy strategy at the Atomexpo.
“No kind of sanction can limit the Hungarian energy supply, since one of the basic principles of our country’s energy strategy is that the composition of the energy mix is an exclusive national competence,” said the head of the ministry after the meeting.
Péter Szijjártó emphasized: due to the energy crisis, it is important that a country can produce its own energy, and the Paks nuclear power plant plays a key role in this. The Minister of Foreign Affairs concluded an agreement on the Paks expansion last week, and before that, a law was introduced in the Parliament, according to which the operating hours of the Paks I blocks would be extended.
It is good if we can start the day at three in the morning, because then Austria can fit in half a day after Russia. Today is just like that!
Péter Szijjártó wrote on his Facebook page.
The minister traveled to Vienna from Russia, visited the UN headquarters, then met with the director general of the International Migration Policy Center, and finally ended the day at the Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
