FM Szijjártó Meets Russian Counterpart, U.S. Ambassador To UN
Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó met his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, and the United States’ ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York on Friday.

Szijjártó and Haley pledged to continue cooperation to protect Christian minorities worldwide, the minister told MTI. They both rejected the UN’s global migration compact, which is still being debated, as it was “extremely biased”, he said.

Szijjártó and Lavrov discussed the meeting of the Hungarian-Russian economic committee, scheduled in November, where they plan to sign a cooperation agreement on social security and on the mutual recognition of higher education degrees.
