“The Treaty of Trianon [signed June 4, 1920] is still important for us. It’s necessary for us to ensure that it will still be valid ... so that we don’t lose our Slovakia,” said Slota after the unveiling.

“We’ve financed the plaques and the text was consulted with historians so that it only contains historical facts,” said SNS parliamentary caucus leader Rafael Rafaj. SNS plans to unveil three such plaques.

“One is now being placed in Kosice, because the town was occupied by (Admiral) Horthy’s army during WWII. And, of course, it’s highly important [to unveil a plaque] in Komárno in Nitra region because it’s on the border [with Hungary],” stressed Slota, adding that the plaque destined for Komárno is to be unveiled on Friday, June 4.
