FM: The Romanian president is deliberately harming Hungarian-Romanian cooperation

The foreign minister expressed Hungary’s continued commitment to developing bilateral relations which serve the interests of ethnic Hungarians in Transylvania and Szeklerland, too.

 

The foreign minister has said the Romanian president is deliberately harming Hungarian-Romanian cooperation by preventing the opening of a new border crossing between the two countries.

Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, reacted on Facebook to a constitutional appeal submitted by Klaus Iohannis against the law on establishing a new border crossing between Kübekháza and Baba Veche (Óbéb).

“Romania’s president is unfortunately an extremely anti-Hungarian politician,” Minister Szijjártó said. Iohannis has been “continually involving Hungary and the Hungarian government into the Romanian election campaign”. His appeal prevents something that is equally important to Romanians and Hungarians, he said.

Minister Szijjártó expressed Hungary’s continued commitment to developing bilateral relations which serve the interests of ethnic Hungarians in Transylvania and Szeklerland, too.
