"At the same time, we have reached the conclusion that areas such as the infrastructure development, the cooperation on environment, energy, climate changes, the Romanian-Hungarian cooperation in the EU on such fields as the agricultural policy, energy policy, environmental policy are areas on which we should keep on focusing ahead of the future sitting as well as after that", the Romanian foreign minister said.
Both Goncz and Comanescu highlighted the positive contribution made by the Hungarian minority living in Romania and the Romanian minority in Hungary, who they said are "bridges and players" for the development of bilateral relations.
Goncz is also scheduled to meet Romanian Prime Minister Calin Popescu-Tariceanu on Tuesday.
The Bucharest and Budapest governments will hold their fourth joint sitting in Hungary this year. The annual inter-governmental sittings offer an efficient framework for the examination and debate of the projects of common interest of the two countries.
