JOBBIK CALLS ON GOVT TO FREEZE TIES WITH SLOVAKIA

 

The opposition Jobbik party has called on the government to freeze bilateral relations with Slovakia until it guarantees withdrawal of a recently approved law which “severely restricts” the singing of the Hungarian anthem there. The Slovak law is “revolting and unacceptable”, and violates European Union norms, Jobbik lawmaker János Bencsik said. The Hungarian government failed to react to similar moves in recent years and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán described cooperation as “exemplary” after a meeting with his Slovak counterpart last summer, Bencsik said.
