Slovenia and Hungary open border for their citizens
Dolga vas, 28 May - Slovenia and Hungary have agreed to lift restrictions on the crossing of state border for the citizens of both countries as of Thursday based on a favourable epidemiological situation in both countries and following successful diplomatic coordination, the Foreign Ministry said.
The announcement on Twitter comes after talks between the Slovenian and Hungarian foreign ministers, Anže Logar and Peter Szijjarto, who met at the Dolga Vas checkpoint.
The talks were dedicated to the current rules on the border, the coronavirus epidemic and the situation of ethnic minorities on both sides of the border.
Hungary closed the border with Slovenia in early March and erected checkpoints through which limited goods transport was allowed into the country.
