Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko recommended the creation of a Hungarian-Ukrainian-Slovak working group to strengthen Europe's energy security and promote the use of new technologies in gas deliveries in a telephone conversation with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Monday.

The conversation - reported by the Ukrainian president's official website – focused on the possibility of interconnecting the Hungarian and Slovakian pipelines at the end of the year, which can greatly contribute to the diversification of gas supplies in the region.

The news release confirmed that PM Viktor Orbán fully supported the Ukrainian president's idea; the two sides also agreed that high-level Hungarian-Ukrainian dialogue was needed to establish good neighborly relations between the two countries.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán assured the Ukrainian president that Hungary was a trusted partner of Ukraine and fully supported the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country, which were the conditions of good neighborly relations.

The two sides have agreed to engage in regular high level dialogues in order to coordinate their efforts on mutually important issues. President Poroshenko invited PM Viktor Orbán to visit Ukraine immediately after the formation of the new Ukrainian government.
