Gyurcsany meets with representatives of the SMK in Bratislava

Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany met with representatives of the Party of the Hungarian Coalition (SMK) on June 17. After the meeting, he spoke about the importance of the two countries’ mutual borders and co-operation.

Gyurcsany added that political and cultural borders will be mixed in a natural way. He said it was quite natural for him to meet representatives of ethnic Hungarians in Slovakia before he met Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico. He added that he would expect Fico to meet ethnic Slovaks the next time he visited Hungary.
