Hungarian, Slovak ministers meet over status law

Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan met his Hungarian counterpart to talk about a new version of a controversial law securing benefits to Hungarian nationals living abroad. Kukan said the meeting was "a good start to the gradual elimination of a lack of trust" between the two neighbours.

The officials met after a nearly four-month break. Hungarian Foreign Minister Laszlo Kovacs presented Kukan with a 13-page draft revision of the so-called status law. Kukan would not comment on whether the version was acceptable to Bratislava.
