"Finally, the thing that was missing here for 18 months has begun," Kubiš said, adding that the negotiations are approaching the level of searching for solutions.

"I'm glad that our Hungarian partners have heard the calls from Bratislava that we can't allow normal co-habitation to turn into harsh conflicts with political confrontations at the highest level, where no resolution be found,” Kubiš said.
