The Slovak Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the fact that 600 new members of the Hungarian Guard were allowed to take an oath at the Heroes Square in Budapest on March 29.
The ministry considers the guard an extremist organisation that poses a growing threat to Hungary, neighbouring countries that respect democratic values and all of Europe, it wrote in a statement.
The ministry als stated that it had called on Hungary to take all necessary steps to prevent activities connected with the Hungarian Guard and that it had raised the issue with EU institutions. SITA
