Romanian President Purposely Harms Hungary-Romania Cooperation, Says FM Szijjártó
The Romanian president deliberately harming Hungarian-Romanian cooperation by preventing the opening of a new border crossing between the two countries, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said, reacting on Facebook to a constitutional appeal submitted by Klaus Iohannis against the law on establishing a new border crossing between Kübekháza and Baba Veche (Óbéb).

“Romania’s president is unfortunately an extremely anti-Hungarian politician,” Szijjártó said. Iohannis has been “continually involving Hungary and the Hungarian government into the Romanian election campaign”.

His appeal prevents something that is equally important to Romanians and Hungarians, Szijjártó said.

The minister expressed Hungary’s continued commitment to developing bilateral relations which serve the interests of ethnic Hungarians in Transylvania and Szeklerland, too.
