“A positive dialogue with the Romanian colleague. Care for the community and desire to move forward was palpable,” he wrote.
According to Klimkin, the parties agreed to continue constructive cooperation on education, including the recommendations that are to be given by the Venice Commission.
“It is highly important to insistently work with ethnic communities to prove that the education reform is needed and explain the further steps,” the MFA Head noted.
Previously the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary said that Hungary and Romania would jointly oppose the new education law in Ukraine.
The new law on education was signed by Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko on September 25. In particular, it implements 12-years-long school program and allows teaching languages of national minorities only in specially created classes in Ukrainian schools. This particular decision evoked outrage in Moldova, Romania, Russia, and Hungary. Budapest even threatens to slow down the process of Ukraine’s integration with the EU.
