Budapest (MTI) – At the end of his official visit to Japan on Monday, Speaker of Parliament László Kövér paid a visit to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.
Kövér, heading a parliamentary delegation, laid a wreath at the memorial to the victims of the atomic bomb and noted in the book of commemoration: “Hiroshima will remain a symbol of eternal duality of the human soul. It is a symbol of the instinct to murder but also a symbol of the will to live and the strength to begin again. In the name of the Hungarian Parliament, we bow our heads in memory of the victims and express our commitment to creating, in our every endeavour, a peaceful world in reality.”
The speaker had talks with Hiroshima’s mayor, Matsui Kazumi, and he expressed recognition of everything done by the city’s leadership, citizens and the whole of Japan to build Hiroshima up.
