Slovakia's ambassador to Hungary approved

CABINET ministers approved a new Slovak ambassador to Hungary on July 14, but the Foreign Ministry is refusing to reveal the name of the diplomat.

According to the Pravda daily, however, the new ambassador is Juraj Migaš, a career diplomat who previously served in Brussels. He is a relative of the former Slovak Praliamentary Speaker Jozef Migaš.

Slovakia did not have an ambassador in Hungary for two years due to what is believed to have been a failure of the top state representatives to agree on an acceptable candidate.

Only recently the cabinet agreed to nominate the former university official Ferdinand Devínsky, a member of the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, to the post, but President Ivan Gašparovič refused to approve the nomination arguing that a diplomat should sit in the post rather than an academic official.

According to the SITA news agency, Gašparovič concurs with the new nomination made in July.
