At its meeting in Štrba in Presov region on April 6, the Slovak government expressed its strong disapproval about a parliamentary proposal advanced by the opposition Smer party to hold an extraordinary meeting of parliament to discuss Slovak-Hungarian relations. The cabinet ministers entrusted Prime Minister Iveta Radičová to present the cabinet's stance in written form to Speaker of Parliament Richard Sulík, the TASR newswire wrote.
Parliament is scheduled to hold an extraordinary session after its regular session based on a request by opposition lawmakers from Smer, a session which is mandatory if supported by 30 MPs’ signatures. Smer’s MPs want to discuss the current state of what they call "disquieting" Slovak-Hungarian relations and want to pass a resolution which would oblige Radičová to take a more resolute approach toward Hungary.
The coalition claimed that the government is already taking appropriate steps in terms of Slovak-Hungarian relations.
