HUNGARIAN Deputy Foreign Minister András Bársony told his Slovak counterpart Jaroslav Chlebo at a meeting July 3 that Hungary was preparing an amendment to a controversial Status Law for Hungarians living abroad.
The pair agreed a Slovak-Hungarian commission would meet this month to consult on the matter.
The law, which gives cultural, work and educational advantages to ethnic Hungarians living in regional countries, was the cause of much trouble between Bratislava and Budapest after it was introduced last year by the outgoing nationalist government of Viktor Orbán.
