Coronavirus: Hungary, Romania Lift Quarantine Requirement for Each Other’s Citizens

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.06.17.

From Wednesday, Hungarian and Romanian nationals will be allowed to cross each other’s borders without being required to go into quarantine, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Facebook on Tuesday.

The ethnic Hungarian RMDSZ party has been urging the Hungarian government to reach a deal with Bucharest on lifting the requirement for Hungarians and Romanians to undergo quarantine after crossing each other’s borders, Szijjártó said in a video message.

Talks on the matter were speeded up and an agreement was reached, the minister said. He thanked RMDSZ and its leader, Hunor Kelemen, for keeping the issue on the agenda.
