Budapest finally approves Slovakia's ambassador to Hungary

There are no more obstacles to Juraj Migaš appointment as the Slovak ambassador to Hungary, news wire SITA wrote.

Budapest has issued an agreement for the career diplomat who was also Slovakia's ambassador to the EU. Migaš has been waiting for approval since July 14. Budapest blames delays on Hungarian President Ferenc Madl’s vacation.

The Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), a member of the ruling coalition in Slovakia, appreciates that the ambassador post will finally be filled after a two-year vacancy. However, SMK is unhappy that Migaš does not speak Hungarian.

SMK chairman Béla Bugár said that Migaš does not necessarily have to speak Hungarian, but it is important that he should understand. A foreign ministry source said that Migaš is already taking Hungarian language lessons.

Migaš will take up the post two years after his predecessor, Stefan Markuš retired. In line with the law on state service, Markuš had to retire after he reached 65 years of age. It wasn’t until recently that Slovakia proposed a replacement for the post.
