Joining forces in central Europe is becoming increasingly important in current times, Miklós Soltész, state secretary for church and minority relations, said in Zagreb on Tuesday.
Soltész met Croatian Minister of Culture Nina Obuljen Korzinek and discussed the planned revamp of a church in Zazina. Following an earthquake that hit hard central Croatia in December 2020, the Hungarian government offered to pay for the revamp of a school in Petrinja and the church of Zazina.
Soltész also visited Split where he met representatives of the Democratic Union of Hungarians of Croatia and attended a service in honour of Saint Margaret of Hungary in the Sveti Duje Cathedral.
Soltész praised the efforts of ethnic Hungarians in Croatia to nurture their language and culture and said they can continue to rely on the Hungarian government’s help.
