PERSONAL SAFEGUARDING OF SIGNING THE TREATY OF TRIANON WITH THE ALLIED AND ASSOCIATED POWERS AT MEETINGS OF THE HUNGARIAN CABINET COUNCIL (MAY 1920)
The Hungarian government discussed the personal safeguarding of the Treaty at its meetings on 27th, 28th and 31st May 1920. Negotiations regarding personal involvement of the Hungarian government, which was entrusted with signing the Treaty, was not an easy undertaking due to a negative perception of the peace issue (or rather the creation of the Versailles mandate system) by the Hungarian society. It personified an unacceptable territorial establishment under the piece convention. Nevertheless, discussions of the Simonyi-Semadam's government proved that signing the Treaty by the Hungarian government was not attached to Budapest's prestige. Signing the peace Treaty by the 'mere' Labour Minister, Ambassador Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary was not designed to politically declare the negative standpoint of Hungary towards the Treaty. Signing the peace Treaty was regarded by respective ministers as a matter of purely personal and carrier prestige.
