Ukraine – Hungary




The foreign Ministry of Ukraine hopes that speculation on this subject do not reflect the official position of Budapest.

The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine was surprised to hear the public calls the Vice-Prime Minister of Hungary Zsolt semien of the autonomy of the Hungarian minority in neighbouring countries. This is stated in the commentary of the foreign Ministry, reported the press service of the Ministry.

“Hungary has always been and is an important partner for Ukraine. We appreciate the friendly nature of bilateral relations and high level of constructive cooperation. We expect that the position regarding respect for the territorial integrity, sovereignty and Constitution of our state will remain the basis for our good neighbourly relations . Any speculation on this subject is not in the interests of our two countries and peoples, and, hopefully, do not reflect the official position of Budapest”, – stated in the message.

The foreign Ministry urged Hungary to resist attempts to use the issues of ensuring the rights of national minorities to foment an atmosphere of distrust and misunderstanding, as it has repeatedly been made by the Russian aggressor.

“After all, thanks to years of efforts of the Ukrainian government and the Hungarian community level for cultural, religious and educational needs of ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine is in many ways an example for other countries in the region”, – said the Minister.
