In an interview with will be published on Wednesday Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó confirmed that the current rutine of Hungarian-Russian high level meetings will continue in the future; within this framework a top level Hungarian-Russian summit and official foreign ministerial meeting will be held in Budapest, next year.

According to Russian sources, the Putin-Orbán summit will be held sometime in February.

In the interview, the foreign minister also said: he advised the government to honor outgoing US Ambassador to Hungary Colleen Bell with a high State Award for her tireless work to improve US-Hungarian relations.

We owe a lot to the US ambassador, because when Hungarian-American relations got tense she was always of the opinion that we should tone down the political rhetoric.

If somebody else would have been the US ambassador, then Hungarian-American relations had worsened that could have an impact on both the security and economic co-operation with the US said Szijjártó.
