Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Friday that the Hungarian government “will always support Transcarpathia Hungarians”.

Szijjártó said on Facebook that his most recent talks with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba in Budapest had been characterised by correctness and a friendly atmopshere.

“I told him also on that occasion that Hungary would only withdraw its veto of ministerial level NATO-Ukraine talks if ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia get back their rights to education in the mother tongue,” he said.
