The Hungarian Days event in Cluj (Kolozsvár) serves as a "messenger" for Hungarian-Romanian cooperation, the Parliamentary State Secretary Péter Szijjártó said on Sunday, in Cluj, where he attended the event, organised for the fifth time..

He noted there were significant changes going on in the world on the whole, and the goal was that "in this new world order Central Europe, including Hungarians and Romanians, should belong among the winners." He called good cooperation between Hungary and Romania an important component to a well-operating Central Europe.

Mr Szijjártó called it a success in Hungarian-Romanian bilateral relations that the first dual-carriage way link, between the two countries would be created this year and that the two countries' governments had reasserted their positions on building 12 new border crossing stations.

Mr Szijjártó called the ethnic Hungarian community living in Romania the most important link in bilateral cooperation.
