Boka: EU must create peace in its neighbourhood
At an informal working breakfast, Boka outlined Hungary’s position on the rights of the Transcarpathian Hungarian minority and their current situation.
He said the government demanded solutions related to the education of the Hungarian minority as well as under headings connected with the language and minority law, in line with the recommendations of the Venice Commission. The situation should be restored to the state of affairs in 2015, he added.
President Katalin Novak’s recent visit to Ukraine reanimated discussions about the situation of the Transcarpathian Hungarian minority, he said, adding that it was important that momentum should be combined with sincere political intentions, leading to palpable results.
Meanwhile, Boka said he had talked to senior European Commission officials regarding preparations for Hungary’s EU presidency.
