Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó had talks with US officials in Budapest on Tuesday, and briefed them about the government’s commitment to protecting Christian communities.
Szijjártó met with Joe Grogan, Assistant to the US President, Bonnie Glick, deputy head of USAID, as well as pastor Andrew Brunson, the foreign ministry said in a statement.
Szijjártó said protecting Christian communities was the focus of Hungarian diplomacy. He also noted the government’s standpoint that aid must be delivered where problems occur, adding that Hungary will continue sending aid to the Middle East and Africa.
“Hungary rejects international community treating anti-Christianity as the last acceptable form of discrimination,” Szijjártó said in the meeting.
