Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén said the purpose and aim of the Hungarian state is to preserve the Hungarian nation and improve the quality of life of Hungarians.
During an online conference organized by the Friends of Hungary Foundation, Deputy PM Semjén said the only way the Hungarian nation will survive is if every part of it survives.
The Deputy PM, also in charge of Hungarian communities abroad, church policy and national and ethnic minorities, said that if a part of the nation, such as the ethnic Hungarian communities in Slovakia or Romania, were to disappear, it would endanger the survival of the nation as a whole, he said.
“Every nation is a unique and one-of-a-kind asset,” he said. “They possess values that only they can give to humanity, so anything that truncates the existence of a nation ultimately truncates the wealth of humanity’s assets.”
