The situation is still very tense.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin admitted that he had a difficult discussion with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Siarto. He said this at a briefing in the headquarters of the United Nations.
“We are after an hour of discussion did not agree on, how to interpret this incident (with the issuance of the Hungarian passports Ukrainians – ed.). I asked him to recall the Consul – as I understand it, he did not agree. If this decision in the near future will not happen, he (the Hungarian Consul – ed.) will go home. The meeting was very difficult. We will work on, we came to an agreement on key issues,” – said the head of the Ukrainian foreign Ministry.
He also stressed that Kiev and Budapest are unable to reach agreement on “how to help the Hungarian community in Ukraine.”
“We have discussed what is happening in the Hungarian consulates. He (Peter Siyyarto – ed.) does not want to accept our point of view – that, in fact, violated the Hungarian Consul. I explained to him that the problem is not only in the issuance of passports. The second problem is why Hungary violates international law and Ukraine’s legislation. Let her ask us about this (will ask permission for a passport – ed.) if he wants to, and if we let something please. But we do not allow”, – said Klimkin.
However, he noted that the Hungarian consuls even “teach Ukrainians how to hide a new nationality and acquired rights and obligations” and teach them to show on the border “first, one passport, and then another,” and reminded that this is a fundamental violation of Ukrainian legislation.
