Slovaks in Hungary can count on Slovakia's help

Slovak deputy Speaker of Parliament Igor Presperín met with Jan Fúzik, the chairman of the All-Republic Slovak self-government in Hungary, on December 8, the same day that Janos Ader, the Hungarian Speaker of Parliament, visited Slovakia. Presperin announced after the meeting that the Slovak Republic would support the tiny Slovak minority living in Hungary and offer assistance in any way possible.

The two men discussed the status of the Slovak minority in Hungary and the representation of national minorities in the Budapest Parliament. Presperín said that the development of mutual co-operation between Slovak and Hungarian municipalities at cultural, political and economic levels would be aided by Slovakia.

Fúzik said that the Slovak self-government would need Slovakia's aid, mainly in education where the Slovak minority would like to acquire Slovak textbooks. Fúzik also said the Slovak Research Institute in Hungary urgently needed help from the Hungarian Government to resume activities which have been stalled for two years because of the lack of finances.
