Szijjarto discusses ethnic minority rights with head of Ukrainian president’s office

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Friday that he had again spoken with the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak by phone on the rights of the ethnic Hungarian population in Transcarpathia, in the west of Ukraine.

Szijjarto said in a post on Facebook that they were in agreement that some progress had been made over the past weeks by the bilateral working group set up to address the matter but there was still a lot of work to be done. As a result, it was agreed that the working group would meet again in the second half of next week, he added.
