Slovak-Hungarian relations are much better than we actually perceive them, said Slovakia’s new Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák who presented the priorities for his term in the office. He is also meeting his Hungarian counterpart Kinga Goncz in the coming days, the SITA newswire reported.

Lajčák’s priorities will include the economic dimensions of foreign policy in order to soften the impact of the economic crisis on the country. He will support the interconnection of gas pipelines in central Europe and rescue measures for automotive plants in this region as part of the economic package of the European Union. He said the basis of his foreign policy will be Slovakia’s membership in the EU and in NATO which will also determine Slovakia‘s policy towards Cuba or Belarus, SITA wrote.
