Hungarian government expects Romanian authorities to restore Valea Uzului (Úzvölgy) military cemetery “to its original state”
Hungary expects Romanian authorities to launch an investigation into last Thursday’s violence and punish the perpetrators. They should make sure that such acts are prevented in future, the Foreign Minister said.
The Hungarian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that working groups of the countries’ defense ministries should begin consultations to “restore proper order in line with bilateral and international agreements”.
Yesterday afternoon, a Romanian crowd broke into an Austro-Hungarian military cemetery in Transylvania, despite heavy police presence and a human chain of ethnic Hungarians protesting peacefully. In Budapest, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó summoned the Romanian ambassador, who refused to appear.
