SZIJJÁRTÓ WELCOMES HUNGARIAN PARTY’S RESULT IN SLOVAKIA PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

 

Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó has welcomed that Krisztián Forró, nominated by Slovakia’s Hungarian Alliance party, has secured the fourth place in the first round of Slovakia’s presidential election this weekend. The Slovakian Hungarian community is “strong and has demonstrated political unity,” he added, and congratulated Forró on his result. “Hungary always respects the decision of voters in other countries, while its foreign policy is based on mutual respect; the country never interferes with the internal affairs of other countries and expects others to do the same,” he added. “We wish to see more and more politicians internationally that speak the language of peace … we will always support such politicians,” Szijjártó said.
