"I am convinced that this decision by the Hungarian people is also a good news for Hungarians beyond our borders. By taking this important decision, the mother country has strengthened its international position and, through this, it will have better opportunities for further developing its bilateral ties with its neighbours where Hungarian communities live. Another important point is that we will be able to represent Hungarian minority rights at international forums which become available for this purpose only though this entry."
