Hungarian President Pal Schmitt called his Georgian counterpart Mikheil Saakashvili's visit to the country historic.
"Hungary appreciates reforms carried out in Georgia and supports the country's territorial integrity and sovereignty," he said at a joint press conference held after the meeting of the presidents.

In turn, Saakashvili spoke about reforms carried out in Georgia and stressed that Georgia will share its experience with Hungary and thus it will be familiarized with Hungary's experience.
Saakashvili thanked Hungary for its support in terms of Georgia's integration into Euro-Atlantic structures.
He said Georgian Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili will visit Hungary soon, and in turn, Hungarian Prime Minister and Interior Minister will visit Georgia. The purpose of these visits is to exchange experiences.
