Former Hungarian Socialist Prime Minister has died at age 80 after a long illness, the government said in a statement on Wednesday, expressing its condolences to the family.
 
Horn was Hungary's prime minister between 1994 and 1998.
 
He was foreign minister in Hungary's last Communist government, and played a key role in political processes in the late 1980s that led to the collapse of Communism in Europe and reunification of Germany.
