Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Hungary:
The whole of Europe and the whole world wants Minsk agreements on the settlement of Ukrainian conflict to be implemented. Hungary attaches great importance to the implementation of the Eastern Partnership initiative. And when we formulate the strategy for relations of the European Union towards Belarus, we proceed from the fact that Belarus is a stable country and is making efforts for the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis.

Vladimir Makei, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus:
A characteristic feature of our cooperation is the desire of both sides to focus precisely on those areas that unite us rather than divide, and to achieve results in these areas. We see a systematic approach to the further development of Hungary's foreign policy and foreign economic strategy and its openness to the east.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary also met today with the head of the Belarusian government. 

According to Andrei Kobyakov, Belarus as the country chairing the Eurasian Economic Union is ready to promote dialogue and cooperation between the European Union and the EU.
