Members of the Slovak and Hungarian parliamentary committees for European affairs came together to discuss strained Slovak-Hungarian relations at a meeting in the Hungarian border town of Komárom on November 12.

The Slovak side was represented by Milan Urbáni (HZDS), chair of the parliamentary committee for European affairs, Slovak National Party (SNS) MP Sergej Chelemendik, and ethnic-Hungarian SMK vice-chairman József Berényi.

Both sides are interested in finding ways to prevent extremism and mutual bitterness, they said. At the same time, the local authorities of Komárom are holding talks with their counterparts from the neighbouring Slovak town of Komárno (Nitra region), with transport the main talking point. The two sides are discussing the possible introduction of a public-transport link between their towns and are also looking for opportunities to co-operate in the field of tourism and the organisation of cultural and social events.
