Duray: SMK has nothing to explain about attendance at FPKK session

The opposition ethnic-Hungarian SMK party has nothing to explain about its attendance at the 'Forum of MPs of the Carpathian Basin' (FPKK) on September 12 and 13, in Budapest, SMK vice-chairman Miklós Duray said on September 14.

Duray was reacting to Slovak National Party (SNS) chairman Ján Slota's request that Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška convene a session on the meeting.

"We have never convened a session based on Slota's statements,” Duray told the TASR newswire. “We don't know where he is heading with this."

Slota described FPKK as a tool by Budapest to interfere in the internal matters of neighbouring states with Hungarian minorities. FPKK consists of members of the Hungarian Parliament, European Parliament, and Hungarian members of neighbouring countries' parliaments.

But according to Hungarian Parliamentary chair Katalin Szili, the forum’s goal is to promote the interests of all Hungarians. TASR
