Szijjarto: Romania’s political stability in Hungary’s interest


Political stability in Romania is “extremely important” for Hungary in several respects, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said after talks with Hunor Kelemen, Romanian deputy prime minister and leader of the ethnic Hungarian RMDSZ party, in Bucharest on Tuesday.

“It is in our interests that there is political stability [in Romania]said Szijjarto, adding that RMDSZ has contributed greatly to this stability.

The Hungarian government wants to maintain its economic program to support ethnic Hungarian businesses in Romania, the minister said, but suggested that “wartime inflation might somewhat restrict” the program.

The Hungarian government supports the RMDSZ in its efforts to protect the education rights of the Hungarian minority, Szijjarto said. He said he hoped the Roman Catholic high school in Targu Mures (Marosvasarhely) could become an independent college again from next year.

Szijjarto said the joint Hungarian-Romanian economic and ethnic committees would meet in November. He also announced that two new border crossings, at Dombegyhaza and Elek, would be opened before the end of this year.

Responding to a question about extracting gas from the Neptun Deep gas field under the Black Sea, Szijjarto said Hungary would be “interested in possible imports” once oil and gas companies Petrom and OMV decide to launch a project. Importing gas from Romania has no infrastructural obstacles as the networks of the two countries have been interconnected, he noted.

Earlier in the day, Szijjarto met with Bogdan Lucian Aurescu, his Romanian counterpart, Energy Minister Virgil-Daniel Popescu, Business and Tourism Minister Constantin-Daniel Cadariu, Sports Minister Karoly Eduard Novak, as well as Minister of Development, Public Administration and Public Development Attila.
