Slota: Hungary should act on border threat

Hungary should respond to the threats from radicals within its borders to block the border checkpoints between Slovakia and Hungary, Slovak National Party (SNS) chairman Ján Slota said on November 6.

"By occupying the borders, the Neo-Nazis want to show how they want to include themselves in the European Union, and what solidarity in the EU means for them," Slota commented sarcastically in a press statement. "I don't know how much more mischief is necessary for the Hungarian government to begin to act."

Csanad Szegedi, vice-chair of the Hungarian radical party Jobbik, has announced that, on November 10, the members of this party and the Hungarian Guard will block one lane in front of 20 border checkpoints between the countries in protest against the alleged anti-Hungarian policies in Slovakia.

"I turn to the Slovak government with determination, especially to the Foreign Affairs Minister (Ján Kubiš), that he immediately turn to his Hungarian counterpart with a clear question on what the Hungarian government will do with these Neo-Nazis and Great Hungarian chauvinists, who march daily through the streets of Budapest," Slota said.

When asked how the Slovakia will react to the demonstrators, Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák said that both countries are part of the Schengen zone, so everybody who comes in peace is welcome. However, if Slovak law is violated, he said, police will react accordingly. TASR
