Korčok opened sensitive Slovak-Hungarian topics. With Budapest, it wants subsidies and purchases in Slovakia and history
After several diplomatic conflicts between Bratislava and Budapest, which were hanging with the topics of dual citizenship and visits of Hungarian constitutional officials to Slovakia, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivan Korčok called his Hungarian colleague to Bratislava for a meeting.
Korčok suggested that they also open those topics which in recent years have not been the subject of Slovak-Hungarian consultations, but which raise questions in mutual relations.
The head of Slovak diplomacy handed over a document to Hungarian Minister Péter Szijjártó with five points that want to help the Slovak side.
Korčok suggested that ministers meet regularly in bilateral negotiations, at least twice a year. “The Slovak side feels the need to openly discuss the issues we have seen in the recent period. We also have many questions in these areas, “said Korčok.
“It is in our partnerships to find out about situations where we learn about some things from the media,” the Slovak minister added, citing the purchase of agricultural land in Slovakia, historic buildings in Košice or subsidies for the reconstruction of sacred buildings in Slovakia.
