Prime Minister Robert Fico’s Smer-SD party isn't surprised that Hungarian opposition party Hungarian Civic Union (FIDESZ) is again trying to bring discord to Slovak-Hungarian relations, party spokesperson Katarína Kližanová Rýsová said in reaction to statements made by FIDESZ on November 5.

Kližanová Rýsová also said that it's not surprising that FIDESZ is taking Slovak-Hungarian issues to the European Parliament (EP), and thus gaining political points.

"Smer-SD never tried to fuel the hatred in Slovak-Hungarian relations and it will never do so," she said. TASR
