Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha held talks with her Hungarian counterpart for the second time since the deadly boat crash on the Danube and agreed to continue close cooperation in searching for victims and investigating the incident.


Kang and Minister Peter Szijjarto met in Sovakia  on Friday on the sidelines of a foreign ministerial meeting between Korea and the Visegrad Group, a regional alliance that includes Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland.


During the one-on-one, the Hungarian foreign minister explained that the Slovakian government adjusted the water level in the upper stream of the Danube making it possible for a crane to reach the site of the accident.

He added that search operations were also widening in cooperation with countries located on the lower areas of the Danube.

Earlier, Minister Kang also met with Slovakia's Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak and thanked the Visegrad Group countries for their assistance in the search for Korean victims.
