By Diyar Guldogan
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Hungarian counterpart Katalin Novak met on Sunday in Budapest for talks.
No information was immediately shared about the closed-door meeting.
Earlier, Erdogan met Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to discuss bilateral relations, Türkiye's EU accession process, as well as regional and international issues.
The Turkish leader, who is in Hungary's capital for the country's National Day celebrations, also greeted citizens who were demonstrating their love for him. He will later attend the World Athletics Championships.
Novak was one of the first world leaders who congratulated Erdogan on his victory in the May 28 presidential election.
In late March, she visited Ankara as well as the regions struck by the Feb. 6 twin earthquakes in southern Türkiye.
Relations between Türkiye and Hungary were elevated to the level of strategic partnership in 2013 after the establishment of the High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council. The friendly ties have gained momentum in every field in recent years.
This December, the countries are set to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.
