Szijjarto meets leaders of Slovakia’s Hungarian Alliance party

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto met the leaders of Slovakia's ethnic Hungarian Alliance party, in preparation for Prime Minister Robert Fico's visit to Budapest next week.

Szijjarto said on Facebook that he and Alliance leader Krisztian Forro had reviewed the most important issues for ethnic Hungarians living in Slovakia.

The foreign minister said that the Hungarian government was looking forward to the visit, and pledged to give emphasis at the talks to “crucial” development projects in southern Slovakia where a large number of Hungarians live.

“We are ready to increase the number of border crossings between the two countries so that the border should connect rather than separate people,” he said. Hopefully, “empty railways will fill up again, and there will be joint bus routes and new bridges,” Szijjarto said.
