Orbán: Hungary-Croatia disputes won’t affect minority issues
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán held talks with Róbert Jankovics, head of the ethnic Hungarian Democratic Community of Croatian Hungarians (HMDK) party, in Parliament on Monday, Orbán’s press chief told MTI.
Orbán and Jankovics agreed that though there are some lingering disagreements between Hungary and Croatia, these do not affect the situations of Hungarian and Croatian minorities in the two countries, thanks in large part to the activities of HMDK, Bertalan Havasi said.
The two leaders reviewed the various investment projects carried out in Croatia as part of HMDK’s rural and economic development strategy with the support of the Hungarian government and discussed plans for further developments.
They touched on the renovation of the reformed church in Laslovo (Szentlászló), the establishment of the educational farm and youth centre in Kopacevo (Kopács) as well as the Hungarian language education and cultural centre in Osijek (Eszék).
Jankovics expressed hope that Orbán would attend the inauguration of a major Hungarian community investment project in Croatia next year, Havasi said.
