On March 7, 2022, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi had a phone conversation with Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto at the latter's request.

Szijjarto said, Hungary appreciated China's efforts to achieve peace in Europe and avoid further escalation of the situation in Ukraine. Hungary is ready to help Chinese nationals in Ukraine evacuate and return to China and hopes to further upgrade the level of mutually beneficial cooperation between Hungary and China.

Wang Yi said, the Chinese side regrets the current situation in Ukraine and hopes that the European Union can uphold the spirit of strategic autonomy and play a more proactive role in resolving the current Ukraine crisis and building a European security mechanism in the next step.

Noting that one of the most important tasks for the Chinese government at present is to spare no effort in guaranteeing the safety of Chinese nationals in Ukraine, Wang Yi thanked the Hungarian side for providing convenience and assistance to Chinese nationals for their smooth evacuation recently. This embodies the good tradition of China and Hungary supporting and helping each other. China highly appreciates the Hungarian government's long-term friendly policy towards China and will continue to support the deepening of mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries for more results. He wishes the Hungarian people to continue forging ahead on the path of their own choice and achieve greater achievements.
