The meeting was attended by Environment Minister József Nagy, who – as an honorary guest – gave a presentation on his ministry’s agenda and its goals.

"I'm grateful for being invited to this event, where an open and constructive dialogue on problematic issues such as the environment was held in a friendly atmosphere," said Nagy, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The participants talked about the EU's plans to secure clean and efficient energy sources. "I'd love to get rid of nuclear energy but then we need to find an alternative. A wish is one thing but a solution – on how to secure the alternative – is another," said Nagy. The meeting was convened at the initiative of Hungarian Ambassador Antal Heizer, as Hungary currently presides over the EU.
