Kelemen: Hungary will not buy the land from under Romanian citizens

 

UDMR President Kelemen Hunor stated yesterday on RFI that Hungary will not buy the Romanians’ plots of arable land and deemed that Mircea Geoana’s reactions on this issue represent “over-politicking,” pointing out that he is looking for subjects “in order to stand out.” “Had Mircea Geoana read the law that regulates this field then he certainly would have found out that at this moment there are fairly numerous guarantees for Romanian citizens to have the possibility of buying the land and for the state’s possibility of coming up with an offer and from this point of view it is almost impossible to end up in the position of having another state buying up the land in Romania,” the UDMR President stated, being quoted by Mediafax.

Kelemen’s reaction comes after the media revealed the statement made by Szabo Jozsef Andor, the Hungarian Embassy’s attaché on agricultural issues. The attaché had stated that the Hungarian authorities have a program that would allow those willing to sell their land to sign a contract with the Hungarian state and to receive a life annuity as a result. “These rumors are worrisome and Hungary’s open involvement in the purchase of land in Romania is unacceptable, the urgent discussion of the issue within the Supreme Defence Council being necessary,” PSD Senator Mircea Geoana stated in reply.
