The governments of the United Kingdom, Scotland and Hungary are all fully open to guaranteeing citizens’ rights, the state secretary for European affairs at the Prime Minister’s Office told MTI on Friday.

During his visit to the UK, Szabolcs Takács held talks with officials of the Scottish and UK governments in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Friday.

Takács said one of the main goals of his visit was to confirm to Hungarians in Scotland that the Hungarian government has considered it a priority since the start of the Brexit negotiations to preserve the acquired rights of Hungarians living in the UK.

For that matter, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó had previously voiced that the Hungarian government was interested in promoting a “fair” agreement between the UK and the EU, maintaining tight business relations and continuing a security cooperation with the UK, as well as ensuring that the acquired rights of Hungarian nationals living in the UK are maintained.
