Slovak-Hungarian relations were discussed on November 5 by the European Parliament's Committee for Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs in the context of the Declaration on Inviolability of the Beneš Decrees recently approved by the Slovak parliament.
Slovak MEP Monika Beňová told SLOVAKIA that as far as she knows, the discussion was initiated by Hungarian MEPs and Slovak MEPs nominated by the Slovak ethnic-Hungarian SMK party. According to her, it was unfortunate that Slovakia was presented as a country with a deteriorating attitude towards ethnic minorities. It was a discussion among Hungarians, Slovaks and Czechs on a topic that no one was interested in except for these MEPs, she said. TASR
