Slovak Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška (Smer-SD) and his Hungarian counterpart Katalin Szili agreed on December 3 in Komárom to hold a meeting this February in Esztergom between the Slovak and Hungarian parliamentary committees.

On February 11, at the session of the parliamentary foreign affairs committee, he said he was “a bit nervous” because of the upcoming meeting of the Slovak and Hungarian foreign affairs committees, when talking about the preparedness of Slovak officials for the discussions in Esztergom.

Paška thinks that the issues that should be discussed at the meeting are the representation of ethnic minorities in the Hungarian parliament and institutionalisation of the Forum of MPs of the Carpathian Basin (FPKK) which was set up by the Hungarian parliament.

Pal Csaky chairman of SMK (a party representing ethnic Hungarians living in Slovakia) told TASR that there shouldn’t be great expectations on either side but that discussion need to continue. TASR
