The parliaments of Slovakia and Hungary will strive to build above-standard Slovak-Hungarian relations.

The speakers of parliament of both countries, Boris Kollár and László Kövér, agreed on it during their meeting on June 30 in Budapest. They also discussed the European Union and cooperation within the Visegrad Four (V4) countries.

“I have assured the Speaker that it is in our vital interest to maintain very close cooperation within the V4, which we will support,” Kollár said during his official one-day visit, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
