Hungarian President Janos Áder met his new Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky and discussed the problems facing Ukraine’s ethnic Hungarian community. After Zelensky’s inauguration in Kiev on Monday, Áder proposed in the talks setting up a joint committee to serve as a forum for discussing all disagreements between Hungary and Ukraine. Speaking to MTI afterwards, Áder said his counterpart supported the proposal. “Our interest lies in fostering equally stable and peaceful relations with Ukraine — our most populous neighbour — as with our other neighbours,” Áder said. “We’re open to this. At the same time, I also made it clear that the Hungarian community of Transcarpathia isn’t asking for more than for Ukraine to honour the obligations it is bound to by its constitution and international treaties,” he added.
