Co-chairs of Ukrainian-Hungarian commission on national minorities to meet in Budapest

The co-chairs of the joint Ukrainian-Hungarian commission on national minorities will meet in Budapest between July 13-14, Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister Vasyl Bodnar has told Ukrinform.

"The head of the Ukrainian part of the Ukrainian-Hungarian commission on national minorities, Deputy Minister of Culture Svitlana Fomenko, will meet with her Hungarian counterpart in Budapest on July 13-14," Bodnar said.

He added that the participants in the meeting would discuss the key principles of the commission's work, the update of its composition and areas in which the commission will focus in its future work. The full commission may meet in August or September, Bodnar said.

He said preparations were also underway for a meeting of the working group on education, which is to take place in the coming weeks in Budapest as well. The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine will delegate representatives for further negotiations with the Hungarian side on this issue.

When asked whether the planned meetings will be a sufficient step in preparing for a possible future visit by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to Ukraine, the diplomat said: "In our understanding, yes, they will."

The fourth meeting of the joint Ukrainian-Hungarian intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation was held in Kyiv on June 25. The meeting was co-chaired by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto.
