  • Description

    The Iranian Premier Amir Abbas Hoveyda arrived in Budapest on Monday (20 May) for four days of talks with the Hungarian Prime Minister Jeno Fock and other officials. A key topic for discussion is expected to be oil -- although the talks will cover a wide range of economic issues.

    At the moment, Hungary imports 90 per cent of her oil from the Soviet Union. Iraq is the main Middle East supplier, but it's thought the Hungarians are anxious to meet their rising oil supply needs with imports from Iran. Recently, Hungary signed a contract with Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia for the construction of a pipeline from the Adriatic, which -- when completed -- will cut the price of importing fuel from the Middle East.

    Relations between Hungary and Iran have developed over the last six years, and in recent months there have been a number of reciprocal visits by officials. Last year, trade between the two topped the GBP12.5 million mark, and it's planned that this will increase annually.

    From Hungary, Mr. Hoveyda will go on to Yugoslavia, where he'll stay three days.
