Sinn Féin MLA Declan McAleer met the Hungarian ambassadors to Ireland and Britain to discuss the current state of the political process.

Speaking after meeting wth the ambassadors, the West Tyrone MLA said;

"I had positive and constructive meetings with Tamas Magyarics, Hungarian ambassador to Ireland and Peter Szabadhegy, Hungarian ambassador to Britain.

"We discussed a range of matters including the peace process and national, social and economic issues.

"We also discussed issues around agriculture and rural development, infrastructure and business, including the valuable contribution that Hungarian workers make to the local economy through employment in companies such as Sandvik in Tyrone.

"I also sympathised with the ambassadors following the death of a Hungarian man killed in a road collision on the A5 recently while on his way home from work.

"The Hungarian community make a positive contribution to our society, particularly in the Omagh area where many Hungarian nationals have made their home in recent years."
