ORBÁN MEETS ETHNIC HUNGARIAN LEADERS IN BĂILE TUȘNAD

 

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met leaders of ethnic Hungarian organisations in the Carpathian Basin on the eve of the speech he is scheduled to deliver at Băile Tușnad (Tusnádfürdő), his press chief said. The meeting was attended by presidents Hunor Kelemen of RMDSZ (Romania), Krisztián Forró of MKP (Slovakia), István Pásztor of VMSZ (Serbia), Róbert Jankovics of HMDK (Croatia) and Ferenc Horváth of MMONK (Slovenia). Hungary’s government was also represented by Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén, State Secretary János Nagy and head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee Zsolt Németh. It was established that the protracted war in Ukraine was hitting not only Hungary, but ethnic Hungarian communities beyond the border, too. For this reason, there is a pressing need for coordinating efforts to avert economic and social dangers. The participants expressed their intention to retain even amidst the current crisis what Hungary’s policy towards Hungarian communities abroad had achieved over the past twelve years, the press chief said.
