The delegation was joined at the border by the head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration, Viktor Mykyta. Szijjarto said that this was good, as it was necessary to "improve cooperation between Ukraine and Hungary."

According to the foreign minister, Mykyta "brought a completely new perspective to Transcarpathia: he represents a culture of reconciliation so that Ukrainians and Hungarians can live side by side in peace."
