Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Monday that the prospect of cooperation between Hungary and China is bright.

Orban made this remark when he met with visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi.

Hungary-China relations have made great progress in recent years as leaders of both countries have vigorously promoted ties between the two countries, further defined the principles for the development of bilateral ties, and consolidated the basis for bilateral cooperation, Orban said.

Orban reaffirmed that Hungary would stick to the one-China policy and the practice of non-interference in each other's internal affairs and remain open to the East, including China.

He also said that the Hungary-China relationship has become a positive and unique component of Europe-China ties and Hungary would continue to push the Europe Union to open to China, which also would help Hungary and the EU to cope with the international financial crisis.

Yang said China and Hungary enjoyed traditional friendly relations, high political mutual trust, strong economic complementarity, and great potential of cooperation.

He said China is willing to deepen cooperation with Hungary in fields such as economy, trade, science and technology, culture, education, and tourism to push bilateral relations to a new level.

China highly appreciated Hungary's persistent adherence to the one-China policy, Yang said.

The Chinese foreign minister also said that Hungary, which is close to the East geographically and has a better understanding of the region, is a good friend of China in the EU.

China appreciated Hungary's efforts for promoting China-EU relations in the period when it holds the EU's rotating presidency, Yang said. China hoped Hungary could continue to play a positive role in deepening cooperation between China and Europe, especially between China and Central and Eastern European countries, he added.

Meanwhile, Yang noted that stronger China-Hungary cooperation is also conducive to deepening Asia-Europe relations, as well as world stability and development.
