Speaker of Lower House Meets with Hungarian FM

peaker of the house of representatives (lower house) Habib El Malki met, on Thursday in Budapest, with foreign minister Péter Szijjártó as part of the working and friendship visit he is paying to Hungary at the invitation of the president of the national assembly.

During the meeting, attended by Morocco's ambassador to the Hungarian Republic Karima Kabbaj, the foreign official expressed his country's support for bolstering Morocco's ties with the EU, mainly in relation with the counterterrorism fight, and hailed Morocco's return to the African Union, said on Friday a statement by the house.

Szijjártó also deplored the absence of an European migration policy, a fact that contributes to attracting more illegal immigrants and creates problems for host countries.

Voicing his country's support for the national cause, he assured that Hungary will back Morocco's positions at the Africa-EU summit slated in Abidjan next November.

El Malki reviewed the different stages of the visit by the Hungarian foreign minister in Rabat in April 2017.
