Jerusalem (MTI) – The Hungarian government’s security policy concerns are well understood by Israeli media representatives, government spokesman Zoltán Kovács said on Tuesday.
“No journalist needs an explanation here why we, Hungarians consider the security aspects of illegal migration important. They understand the Hungarian government’s related views championed both at home and in Europe as a whole,” Kovács told MTI after an international media conference in Jerusalem.
Organised by the Jerusalem Press Club, the conference focused on the relationship between the government and the media in the digital age and the freedom of the press.
Kovacs met representatives of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) and held talks with representatives of NGO monitor, a civil organisation whose mission is to ensure the transparency of international civil organisations that are not obliged to report on their accounts. NGO monitor is financed by private donations, the list of which is publicly available, he added.
Kovács also held talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanjahu’s spokesman for domestic politics and also with the spokesman in charge of international press relations.
