|BUDAPEST， Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Tuesday urged a return to cooperation with Croatia， saying that the MOL-INA dispute needed to be depoliticized， with economic rationality and energy security to play the cardinal roles in resolving the dispute.
His words came at a news conference here on Tuesday after meeting with his Croatian counterpart Davor Ivo Stier.
The falling-out was triggered by two major companies， Hungary's oil and gas giant MOL and Croatia's INA which is partly owned by MOL and partly by the Croatian government.
INA charged MOL with acting illegally to obtain the control of its management. MOL responded by refusing to invest in developing INA and putting its share of INA on the market despite Croatia's protests.
Last week， Interpol rejected Croatia's request to renew an international arrest warrant for the chief of MOL Zsolt Hernadi， who is accused in Croatia of bribery.
Szijjarto noted that Stier， who was appointed as foreign minister in October following September elections， chose Hungary for his first official visit abroad， strongly suggesting the readiness to open a new chapter in the relations between the two countries.
The Hungarian minister said the two officials had agreed to hold a meeting of the intergovernmental joint committee in January.
They also agreed to turn the gas pipelines running between the two countries into a bi-directional one as quickly as possible.
Croatia， Szijjarto said， is committed to building a seaside terminal able to accommodate shipments of LNG (liquefied natural gas) which could prove to be an import source for Hungary.
Stier acknowledged that the dispute between Croatia and MOL had worked against the cooperation between Croatia and Hungary， but they had resolved to improve bilateral ties， which hopefully would lead to a settlement of the dispute as well.
He also touched on energy issues， saying that Croatia's minister for energy affairs would soon be visiting Budapest and the LNG terminal could be a new source of cooperation.
The goal with this visit， Stier said， was to open a new chapter in bilateral ties and begin an approach to cooperation.

BANGKOK Dominik Reimann Jersey , Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Former Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is likely to survive a retroactive impeachment complaint filed against her in the National Legislative Assembly ( NLA) primarily because of the reconciliation efforts initiated by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha and the ruling military junta, analysts here said.
The impeachment complaint, which is aimed at banning Yingluck from engaging in politics for five years Dan-Axel Zagadou Jersey , will be debated in the non-elected NLA next Wednesday. It looms as a hot issue in the mainstream Thai media, particularly in the wake of efforts by the ruling Thai military to promote reconciliation among the various sectors of Thai society.
The retroactive punitive action against the ousted prime minister is largely based on allegations of negligence on her part in the implementation of the populist rice subsidy program initiated by her Pheu Thai (for Thais) Party-led government over the last few years.
The complaint against Yingluck had been earlier lodged by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) which had purportedly found connivance among corrupt government officials and opportunistic rice traders and farmers that resulted in a loss of more 10 billion U.S. dollars in taxpayers' money.
However, former NACC commissioner Somlak Jadkrabuanpol has opined that the non-elected legislators are not legally empowered by the temporary constitution Christian Pulisic Jersey , written by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), to launch an impeachment bid against any government official in the first place and that the military-led, non-elected legislative body is merely performing on a temporary basis Axel Witsel Jersey , pending the outcome of a parliamentary election.
"The impeachment bid will merely spoil the reconciliatory effort being pushed by varied sectors of society. It will not only set a precedent for unnecessary hassles among political opponents and make all reconciliatory efforts more difficult to succeed," Somlak said.
A majority of the non-elected members of the NLA, many of whom are former powerful military officers Andriy Yarmolenko Jersey , will likely oppose the planned impeachment against Yingluck although it is being vigorously pushed by some of their civilian colleagues, according to analysts identified with the NCPO, which is the official name of the ruling military junta.
According to former senator Ruangkrai Leekitwattana Andre Schurrle Jersey , who jumped to the Pheu Thai bandwagon during the previous election which was eventually rendered null and void by the courts, the impeachment proceedings against Yingluck could backfire and subject its proponents to some future legal action and could even land them in jail.
The NLA, all members of which were handpicked by Thai Premier Gen. Prayuth Alexander Isak Jersey , will decide on whether the former leader face an impeachment proceeding and be meted out appropriate penalties, including a ban on holding government positions for five years. Gen. Prayuth led the May 22 military coup that ousted Yingluck.
Yingluck, sister of former Thai leader Thaksin Shinawatra Achraf Hakimi Jersey , categorically denied all charges related to the rice program under which farmers had been given an average of 500 U.S. dollars for each ton of rice purchased by the government. During her tenure, Yingluck had even launched her own investigation into the alleged corruption in the rice subsidy program.
Yingluck is widely expected to seek re-election under the Pheu Thai Party in the next general election as promised by the military government.
According to former Pheu Thai MP Vorachi Hema, Yingluck is still popular among her constituents Abdou Diallo Jersey , especially in the rural areas, and could very well succeed in her bid to return to power.<.
