In a statement, the ministry cited the closure of a Catholic secondary school mostly attended by Hungarian children in Targu Mures (Marosvásárhely) as its reason for suspending its support for Romania’s accession to the organisation.
In the case of Croatia, the ministry cited the situation surrounding Hungarian oil and gas company MOL’s investment in that country and Croatia’s treatment of MOL’s chairman-CEO as its reasons for blocking its bid.
The ministry said Hungary declared its intention not to support either country’s bid to join the organisation at a meeting of the OECD Council in Paris on Friday.
