Parliamant Committee To Meet Over Romanian PM Remarks
The head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee convened for Tuesday 3pm a special session over Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Tudose’s "inacceptable and inexcusable" remarks, ruling Fidesz’s parliamentary group said.

The remarks concerning Hungarian autonomy efforts were strongly rejected by the Hungarian foreign minister, who summoned the Romanian ambassador over the issue on Friday.

Péter Szijjártó called the remarks by Tudose which involved “basically threatening a national community and its representatives with execution” completely unacceptable and incompatible with European values and the 21st century.

According to Hungarian parliament’s website, the foreign affairs committee will hold a joint session with the national cohesion committee.

On Sunday, the opposition Socialist Party also called for convening both committees.
