Hungary is not only respected for its work in protecting Christians, but for also declaring zero tolerance for anti-Semitism, says official

The Anglosphere Society recently held a conference to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the US Law on International Religious Freedom

Azbej Tristan, a deputy state secretary in the Prime Minister's Office who is responsible for initiatives related to persecuted Christians, has represented Hungary at an Anglosphere Society conference in New York to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the US Law on International Religious Freedom.

Tristan gave a speech alongside presentations by influential personalities such as Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, Lord David Alton, Liverpool Baron and Sam Brownback, US Ambassador for International Religious Freedom.

"The participants said that Hungary is an example of those protecting Christianity and freedom," Tristan told MTI.

Tristan emphasized that "I represent a freedom-war nation in the land of free people". He informed the participants about the efforts of the Hungarian government to help Christians, especially those who were persecuted in the Middle East.

"Hungary is not only respected for its work in protecting Christians, but for also declaring zero tolerance for anti-Semitism," the state secretary stated.

The conference was attended by the largest American and European Christian organizations, Christian-Jewish organizations and the American Catholic Charity Organization.

The event was used as a platform to discuss the ideology of radical liberalism and secular relativism now prevalent in the European Union, the migration policy of the European Union, its problems and its dangers.

The Anglosphere Society was founded in 2011 as an independent conservative organization to strengthen the relations and alliances of conservatives in the United States, the United Kingdom and English-speaking areas.
