Nitra region refuses to co-operate with Chinese province

The Nitra regional administration, VÚC, announced on December 16 that it was refusing to cooperate with the Chinese province of Henan due to China's lack of respect for human rights. The ethnic-Hungarian SMK party initiated the move at the latest regional parliamentary session and was supported by MPs from other political parties.

The Nitra regional administration, VÚC, announced on December 16 that it was refusing to cooperate with the Chinese province of Henan due to China's lack of respect for human rights. The ethnic-Hungarian SMK party initiated the move at the latest regional parliamentary session and was supported by MPs from other political parties.

"The whole world criticises China’s very low regard for human rights. We think that we shouldn't support co-operation with such countries," said SMK regional caucus leader.

But the regional authority's chairman, Milan Belica, isn't happy about the decision.

"I think it's a pity," he said after the session. A delegation from Henan visited Nitra region in March to discuss possible co-operation. TASR
