Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said on Thursday he hoped that Hungarian athletes had good results in the ongoing Olympics.
He made the comments while meeting with the Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany. Wen welcomed Gyurcsany to watch the Olympic Games.
Wen also expressed gratitude for the assistance of Hungary after the massive May 12 earthquake in southwest Sichuan Province, in particular its arrangement of sending recuperating children to Hungary.
China valued its traditional friendship with Hungary and would take the 60th anniversary of bilateral ties in the coming year as an opportunity to push forward all-round cooperation, Wen said.
Gyurcsany said Hungary hoped to enhance high-level contacts and trade and cultural exchanges with China, and would like to play a positive role in promoting relations between China and the European Union.
