Discussions for Romania-Hungary high-speed railway continue

Romanian Minister of Transport, Lucian Sova, and Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, discussed, among other important transport topics, the possibility of developing a high-speed railway between Budapest and Bucharest. The two officials met at the ministerial summit on transport, held on 6 March in Budapest.

At the beginning of February 2018, Romanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Teodor Melescanu, and his Hungarian counterpart, Péter Szijjártó, agreed on the development of a high-speed railway between Cluj-Napoca and Budapest.

„The Hungarian Government approved a financing of HUF 1 billion (EUR 3.3 million) for the feasibility study of this project. The Hungarian Government had no objection to Romania’s plan of extending the high-speed railway to Bucharest”, declared Péter Szijjártó a month ago.

Long before the discussions in February 2018, the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs declared that the project of the high-speed train linking Budapest to Bucharest via Cluj-Napoca should be a priority.
