Dzurinda and Bugár in stand-off

Tension continues over PM Mikuláš Dzurinda’s refusal to accept an amended version of a Hungarian law on ethnic Hungarians living in surrounding countries, with Dzurinda now denying a deal on the bill was ever reached.

That statement is in direct conflict with the assertion of Dzurinda’s coalition partner, Béla Bugár of the ethnic Hungarian SMK party, and drew a response from Hungarian PM Peter Medgyessy that the two countries had “nothing to talk about” unless Dzurinda changed his position.

Dzurinda has in fact maintained he and Bugár never even discussed the topic.
