Opposition SMK chairman Pál Csáky said on December 12 in Budapest that it appeared the Hungarians wanted to see the problems of the Hungarian minority in Slovakia sorted out before agreeing to the planned meeting of Slovak and Hungarian Prime Ministers.

Speaking before the beginning of the second so-called Hungarian-Hungarian summit with Hungarian PM Ferenc Gyurcsány, some Hungarian ministers, and representatives of Hungarians living abroad in attendance, Csáky said that it would hardly be possible to avoid discussing Slovak-Hungarian relations at this meeting.

"I assume that we will discuss the issues known both in Bratislava and Budapest, namely the fate of Patria Radio (minority broadcaster that is part of Slovak Radio), the problem of using historical Hungarian names in Slovak textbooks, and support for Ján Selye University in Komárno (Nitra region). I hope that the will to resolve these problems will be found in the near future in Slovakia," said Csáky.

According to Csáky, the co-operation and, of course, the support of Hungarians living abroad will also be discussed at Hungarian-Hungarian summit. TASR
