China and Hungary should carry out cooperation within the Belt and Road framework, including the Hungary-Serbia railway, and strive for more concrete outcomes, Xi said in a meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Xi noted that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and China looks forward to working with Hungary to bring the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership to a new level.

It is important for both countries to bolster pragmatic cooperation to achieve win-win outcomes and expand people-to-people exchanges, he added.

Orban said the Hungarian government and people cherish the extraordinary friendship with China.

Hungary firmly believes that China will play a more positive role in a complex and fluid world, he said, adding that the Belt and Road is an opportunity rather than a threat, and Hungary will offer its firm support.

Orban said that Hungary is optimistic about China's high-tech development and welcomes investment from China.

He added that Hungary is ready to promote the development of Europe-China relations as a whole through the platform of cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European countries.

Premier Li Keqiang also met with Orban on Thursday.
