Budapest, December 11 (MTI) – Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen represented Hungary at the state memorial ceremony of the late South African President Nelson Mandela in Pretoria on Wednesday, the head of the Prime Minister’s Press Office said.
Semjen attended a meeting where heads of state and government, royalty, senior officials and South African political leaders and dignitaries were present, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.
He had an exchange with Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, chairwoman of the African Union, and former president and Nobel-laureate F.W. de Klerk.
Nobel-laureate Mandela died in his family home in Johannesburg last Thursday at the age of 95.
