Solyom commends minority rights in Serbia

HORGOŠ -- Hungarian President Laszlo Solyom said that Serbia’s treatment of minorities is “exemplary.”

“We are happy with the fact that in Serbia, minorities enjoy cultural autonomy and that unlike other countries where Hungarians live, Serbia does not have laws against minorities using their native languages and schooling their kids in their mother tongue,” he said.

Solyom is on a three-day visit to Serbia on the invitation of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians.

“The care of the motherland for national minorities represents unity for the Hungarian people. Thanks to that unity, Hungarians in the Diaspora are able to overcome all challenges,” Solyom said.

He will be visiting mostly in Vojvodina during his three-day visit to Serbia and will be meeting with President Boris Tadić in Novi Sad on Sunday.
