The parties discussed in detail the preparations for the next meeting of the Joint Commission. Bodnar expressed confidence that the dialogue between Ukraine and Hungary within the framework of the Commission's activities would contribute to the proper protection of the rights of the Ukrainian minority in Hungary and the Hungarian minority in Ukraine in accordance with the national legislation of the parties.
