International relations should be based on mutual respect rather than on “lecturing and double standards”, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Thursday, after accepting a jubilee medal from Elmar Mammadyarov, Azerbaijan’s foreign minister.

At the event, Szijjártó said Hungarian and Azeri leaders “can always be honest to each other, and so our cooperation is efficient.”
Hungary is committed to keeping up the good relations, he added.
