A delegation from the European Parliament’s faction of European Socialists will be dealing with Slovak-Hungarian relations and Slovakia's Press Code on September 19.

The group will be led by Hannes Swoboda from Austria and Jan Marinus Wiersma from the Netherlands. They will be accompanied by Slovak MEPs for SMER-Social Democracy Monika Flašíková-Beňová and Vladimír Manka. Hungary will be represented by Csaba Tabajdi and Zita Gurmay.

The delegation will first meet media representatives in Bratislava to examine the impact of the new Press Code currently in effect in Slovakia. They will also meet with ethnic Hungarian SMK Chairman Pál Csáky for talks on Slovak-Hungarian relations. They will then travel to the village of Mlynky in Hungary to examine the situation that emerged after a dispute between the local self-government and local Slovak minority representation over the local Slovak cultural centre. The MEPs will then travel to Budapest for talks with Hungarian Foreign Affairs Minister Kinga Göncz. SITA
