SLOVAK MINORITY GROUPS FROM HUNGARY VISIT SCHUSTER. The
chairman of the National Slovak Self-government in Hungary,
Jan Fuzik, met with Slovak President Rudolf Schuster on 8
December to discuss the situation of the Slovak minority in
Hungary, TASR reported. Fuzik said the Slovak minority is
losing its "identity, culture, and mother tongue," adding
that "it is necessary to stop this." Fuzik said his
organization needs Slovakia's help to obtain textbooks and
teaching aids for Slovak students in Hungary. He said
Schuster supported his idea of setting up an office in
Slovakia for "foreign Slovaks." VG
