On Monday, Oct. 9, Szijjarto was in Uzhhorod, where he met with leaders of Zakarpattia Hungarian organizations and heads of historical churches in order to coordinate positions.
Ukraine's FM Pavlo Klimkin proposed Szijjarto to meet in order to discuss the recently passed Education Act of Ukraine. Szijjarto rejected the proposal and said these issues should have been discussed before the bill was adopted.
The recently adopted Education Act of Ukraine provides that education in schools can be held in the languages of ethnic minorities up to 4th grade. From the 5th grade up, school students are obliged to take all classes in Ukrainian, the only state language in Ukraine. The provision sparked criticism by Budapest, which threatened to block Ukraine decisions in the EU over the language provision.
