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

The president stated this when he received Mr. Zsolt Semjen, the Vice Prime Minister of Hungary at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president 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 was quoted as saying.

Earlier, Vice Prime Minister Semjen congratulated Nigeria on the success of the last general election, adding that Hungary looks 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”, Semjen said.

The Hungarian vice prime minister also pledged that his country would deploy its expertise in the area of agriculture to assist Nigeria.
