Agriculture minister discusses Sajo river pollution with Slovak counterpart

Work will start at the end of the week to curb the environmental damage on the River Sajo, Slovak Agricultural Minister Jan Budaj told his counterpart, Istvan Nagy, on Monday.

Some 2.5 tonnes of contaminated water has flowed into the Sajo from an abandoned mine over the past three months, the authorities said last week, with the pollution flowing downriver into Hungary.

At a video conference, Nagy welcomed Slovakia’s steps and said Hungary was ready to help in any way to curb the damage, the ministry said on Monday.
