Németh: Macedonia House Speaker Welcomes Hungary Position on Gruevski

Hungary Today 2018.11.20.

Macedonia’s parliamentary speaker has welcomed the Hungarian government’s position concerning the case of former Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski, Zsolt Németh, the head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, said late on Monday.

Németh met Talat Xhaferi on the sidelines of a NATO Parliamentary Assembly session in Halifax, in Canada, and told him that the Hungarian government considers Gruevski’s application for asylum in Hungary a legal matter, and “the assessment of his application will not change Hungary’s commitment to Macedonia”.

Xhaferi welcomed the Hungarian position as well as Hungary’s support for Macedonia’s NATO integration, Németh told MTI by phone.
