Hungary and Romania will reopen their shared border to commuters, the foreign minister said on Wednesday. Like many other European countries, Hungary recently restricted traffic across its borders in an effort to slow the spread of novel coronavirus, Peter Szijjarto told MTI. However, many of those living along the Hungarian-Romanian border commute to the other country on a daily basis for work, Szijjarto said. "And besides protecting people's health, our job is also to do our best to keep the economy going," he added.
