PM Orbán meets the Coptic Orthodox Bishop of Vienna to discuss migrant crisis

During the meeting, the parties concluded that the best help for Christians in the Middle East will come in the form of support for the restoration of livable conditions in their native lands, rather than their migration to Europe

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has met with H.G. Gabriel, the Coptic Orthodox Bishop of Vienna, at the Parliament Building in Budapest.

During the meeting, the parties concluded that the best help for Christians in the Middle East will come in the form of support for the restoration of livable conditions in their native lands, rather than their migration to Europe.

On Thursday morning, Zoltán Balog and Bishop Gabriel visited a Budapest hospital to meet two Coptic Christians who were injured in a terrorist attack in the Middle East, and who chose to come to Hungary for treatment and recovery.

All parties also discussed and reviewed the threats which migration poses to Hungary and Europe.
