Венгрия продолжит блокировать комиссию Украина-НАТО - Сийярто

Hungary will continue to block the Commission Ukraine-the NATO at level of Ministers.

The decision of the Minister of foreign Affairs of Hungary Peter Siarto stated during a meeting with the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin on the sidelines of the meeting of the foreign Ministers of the EU countries in Luxembourg, reports DW.

In addition, Szijjártó said that Ukraine has made no progress on the education act and did not introduce the recommendations of the Venice Commission.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Hungary also expressed dissatisfaction with the petition, a settlement of the status of Ukrainian citizens with dual or more citizenship of the EU countries, as well as the introduction of a number of citizens of Hungary, including the Szijjártó in the base of the site “Peacemaker”.

During the talks the parties noted that while the conflict between the two countries is not solved, but there is a significant progress.

“We need to find a way to find a common language with Hungary, this difficult way”, – said Klimkin. According to Szijjártó, he also wished “to strengthen and improve relations”.

We will remind, the new Ukrainian law on education, which entered into force on 28 September last year, in particular the condition regarding the state language of education, was criticized in some circles in Ukraine and abroad. Primarily because of this significantly worsened the relations between Ukraine and Hungary.

The transitional provisions of the act include: “persons belonging to indigenous peoples, national minorities of Ukraine and who began receiving a General secondary education before 1 September 2018 up to 1 September 2020 continue to receive such education in accordance with the rules that were before the entry into force of this law, with a gradual increase in the number of subjects that are taught in the Ukrainian language”.
