Conflicts over Hungarian Status Law ironed out, new agreement rises

Lengthy conflicts over the Hungarian Status Law have ended after the Slovak cabinet approved a draft agreement between Slovakia and Hungary on mutual support for ethnic minorities in the sphere of education and culture, the daily SME wrote.

"It is a great result for Slovakia. I had been concerned about the Hungarian Status Law for a long time," PM Mikuláš Dzurinda said.

Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan and his Hungarian counterpart, László Kovács, are expected to sign the document during the European Union summit in Brussels on December 12.

The Hungarian Status Law entitles Hungarians who are citizens of neighbouring countries to employment, travel, education, and other benefits.

Slovakia objected that the law has extraterritorial and discriminatory effects.
