State Secretary: Hungarian-Bavarian relations paramount to success of Europe

Balázs Orbán said Bavarian-Hungarian relations have a long history going back to the times before the foundation of the Hungarian state.

The parliamentary and strategic state secretary at the Prime Minister’s Office said if Hungarians and Bavarians can work together successfully pursuing politics based on Christian values, this cooperation can improve the position of the whole of Europe.

During an event organized by the Hanns-Seidel Foundation, Balázs Orbán said Bavarian-Hungarian relations have a long history going back to the times before the foundation of the Hungarian state.

According to MTI, Orbán said King Saint Stephen and his wife Gisela from Bavaria “worked together” to make Hungary a Christian state and it was thanks to their efforts that stability returned to the central areas of Europe at the time.

The state secretary expressed thanks to the Hanns-Seidel Foundation for supporting a Christian Roma college network and for their contribution to border protection and European and Hungarian security under the arrangements of interior affairs cooperation.
