Government office chief marks National Cohesion Day
János Lázár, the government office chief, marked National Cohesion Day in Szarvas, in south-eastern Hungary, on Saturday afternoon.
Addressing a ceremony, Lazar said it was high time for the leaders of Europe to acknowledge and make it a point of policy reference that Hungarians and the Hungarian nation were not the cause for but the victim of the Treaty of Trianon.
The leaders of Europe and of neighbouring countries have no place saying it is time for Hungary to move past old grievances when they speak about this historical injustice, he added.
In 2010, Hungarian lawmakers declared June 4 the Day of National Cohesion to mark the anniversary of the signing of the treaty that formally ended WWI for Hungary and ceded about two-thirds of its territory to neighbouring countries.
