FIDESZ: Anti-Hungarian rhetoric at irrational dimensions in Slovakia

Hatred towards Hungarians has reached an irrational dimension in Slovakia, said Zsolt Németh, a high-ranking official in the Hungarian Civic Union (FIDESZ), in Budapest on November 5.

Hatred towards Hungarians has reached an irrational dimension in Slovakia, said Zsolt Németh, a high-ranking official in the Hungarian Civic Union (FIDESZ), in Budapest on November 5.

Németh said that FIDESZ is calling on European leftist parties to distance themselves from the minority-rights policies of the Slovak governing party, Smer-SD, the TASR wrote.

Németh accused the Slovak parliament of restricting the right of the Hungarian international community to maintain contact with its homeland, which, he alleged, contravenes with international law. He was referring to the parliament's approval of a resolution stating that ethnic-Hungarian SMK party members shouldn't take part in the Carpathian Basin Hungarian MPs Forum (KMKF).

Németh laid the blame for the alleged hatred towards Hungarians on Smer-SD for inviting a “fascist-like party” [the Slovak National Party] into the coalition. TASR
