Aso Rock Statement

President Muhammadu Buhari said Friday in Abuja that he looks forward to increased bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Hungary, since both countries have a lot in common.

Receiving Mr Zsolt Semjen, the Vice Prime Minister of Hungary at the Presidential Villa, President Buhari said that his administration will welcome the strengthening and expansion of cooperation between both countries in the areas of security and agricultural development.
“Hungary faces some immigration challenges today, just like other parts of Europe. We also have our challenges in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria.

“Hungary is able to fully understand our problems, and we can work together,” President Buhari said.
Vice Prime Minister Semjen congratulated Nigeria on its last general elections, and added that Hungary looked forward to signing agreements with the country on more bilateral cooperation.
He said that terrorism was a global challenge and pledged that his country would support  the Nigerian Armed Forces’ efforts to end the Boko Haram  insurgency.
“The extremism of Boko Haram is not Islamic. It runs contrary to all human philosophies,” the Vice Prime Minister said.
He also promised that Hungary would deploy its expertise in the area of agriculture to assist Nigeria.
