Deputy PM and ethnic Hungarian leaders sign declaration on cooperation in EU

Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén and leaders of four organisations of ethnic Hungarian communities in the Carpathian Basin signed a declaration on cooperation within the EU, in Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár), in western Romania, on Friday.

Under the agreement they will jointly promote the interests of Hungarian communities in the Carpathian Basin in the European Union.

They will also enforce the protection of the rights of indigenous minorities and press for the adoption of a European minority protection law.

The agreement also calls for providing ethnic Hungarians satisfactory living conditions to keep them in their native land. It insists that the European Union should support this effort with growing rather than diminishing funds.

In addition to Semjén, the document was signed by Hunor Kelemen for the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (RMDSZ), István Pásztor for Serbia’s Vojvodina Alliance of Hungarians (VMSZ), József Menyhárt for Slovakia’s Party of the Hungarian Community (MKP) and László Brenzovics for Ukraine’s Hungarian Cultural Federation in Transcarpathia (KMKSZ).
