Fwd: RFE/RL: European Parliament Will Study Hungarina Status

RFE/RL NEWSLINE Vol. 5, No. 166, Part II, 31 August 2001
with Hungarian Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi in Budapest on 30
August, European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Elmar
Brok proposed that Hungary's Status Law be examined by the European
Parliament together with laws of identical nature passed in other
countries. Brok said such a law is not unique among EU member states
or candidate countries, and referred to a German law that grants
ethnic Germans living outside the country the right to a German
passport. He said the European Parliament is likely to make a decision
about the law before the end of the year, Hungarian media reported. "I
am confident that if we compare Hungary's Status Law to similar laws
in other countries, at the end of the day we will not have a major
problem," Brok concluded. MSZ
