A China-Europe freight train arrived here on Monday with much-needed medical supplies for Hungary.
Departing from Jinan, the capital of China's Shandong province on April 7, the freight train delivered face masks, gloves and other protective equipment to Hungary to help fight COVID-19.
"In addition to the air bridge, which has been in operation for several weeks, the connection between China and Hungary has also been restored on land," Laszlo Mosoczi, Secretary of State for Transport Policy at Hungarian Ministry of Innovation and Technology told local media.
