Hungarian deputy calls postponement "slap in the face"

Gyorgy Giczy, president of the opposition Christian Democratic Party, said that the Slovak government's unexpected cancellation of a meeting between Slovak Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar and Hungarian Prime Minister Gyula Horn is a "slap in the face" to Hungary, Hungarian dailies reported on 14 August. In an open letter to Horn, Giczy said that if Horn seeks another meeting with Mečiar, the Christian Democrats will call for a special parliamentary session. The opposition Smallholders' Party released a statement calling the cancelled prime ministerial meeting another "affront" to Hungary. Mečiar and Horn are expected to meet in Slovakia on September 13-14 during a summit meeting of premiers from states in the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA).
