Hungarian ambassador to Slovakia summoned over Orbán’s remark at Baile Tusnad Summer University
“Czechoslovakia (and later Slovakia) and Hungary are equally successor states of Austria-Hungary. So nothing could have been separated from today’s Hungary,” the ministry told TASR news agency, adding that it considered the spreading of such narratives by anyone to be “pointlessly going against good neighbourly relations and stability in our region”.
The ministry said questioning the territorial integrity or sovereignty of Slovakia in any “direct or indirect way is absolutely unacceptable”.
“We therefore reiterate that our interest lies in normal and peaceful relations with Hungary, with respect for and consideration of mutual sensitive issues,” the statement said. “The recent remarks by the Hungarian prime minister do not go in this direction.”
