A church built with Hungarian assistance has been inaugurated in Iraq.

Tristan Azbej, state secretary in charge of the Hungary Helps program, attended the inauguration of the church built in Iraqi Kurdistan with assistance from the Hungarian government’s scheme.

The state secretary told MTI that the Hungarian government’s support “lends hope to Assyrian Christians to start over again.”

At the inauguration ceremony, Azbej read out a letter from Prime Minister Viktor Orbán who voiced his government’s commitment to protecting Christian communities and culture. The ceremony was attended by Mar Gewargis III, Catholicos-Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East, and other religious leaders.
