Hungarian Foreign Minister urged Borrel to ensure that Kiev respects the rights of national minorities

According to Szijjártó, he asked Borrell to remind the representatives of the Ukrainian authorities of the need to respect the rights of national minorities, which are among the fundamental European values.

“I asked the high representative to take measures to ensure that Ukraine respects the rights of the Hungarian national community,” TASS quoted him as saying.

He said that in Ukraine, according to the current legislation, 99 Hungarian primary and secondary schools in Transcarpathia could be closed.

Szijjártó added that he had made it clear that Hungary’s position on the Ukrainian integration process in the EU “will be mostly determined by whether Ukraine respects the rights of the Hungarian national community and whether it returns to it the rights it enjoyed before 2015.

Earlier, Hungarian Foreign Ministry State Secretary for Bilateral Relations Tamas Menzer charged members of the European Parliament for fomenting the Ukrainian conflict in response to their criticism of Szijjártó for his trip to Minsk.
