During a debate in the Hungarian Parliament, the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs Peter Szijjarto confirmed the information that he and other state officials are having meetings in Budapest with the former Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski. Gruevski currently resides in Budapest after he was granted political asylum after he fled Macedonia avoiding a prison sentence. “I was regularly meeting Gruevski, and I shall proceed to do so. If we want the most authentic information about the West Balkans, there is no better source for that than a person who was a PM of a country there for more than 10 years. We find the communication with him rather important. I also need to note that Gruevski is greatly supporting the Euro-Atlantic integrations of his country,” Szijjarto said.
