Hungarian Ambassador István Íjgyártó was not called to the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine due to the statements of Prime Minister Viktor Orban on the absence of the dialogue with the Ukrainian authority as the press service of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry reported.
“The Hungarian ambassador held the negotiations in the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs upon the initiative of Hungary; he was not called,” the message said.
Earlier Orban claimed that Hungary cannot negotiate with the current Ukrainian government; however, the situation might change after the presidential election slated for next year.
According to Orban, Hungary expects Ukraine to act friendly and to restore the rights of Hungarians who reside in this country.
As is known, Ukraine and Hungary's relations worsened when the Ukrainian parliament passed the language on education; it stipulated that the national minorities will be gradually switched to the mode where school students study in the Ukrainian language. They will be able to learn their native language, choosing it as an optional subject.
