Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén said the Hungarian nation will only survive if all of its members feel proud to be a part of it.
Handing out state awards on Friday ahead of the March 15 national holiday commemorating Hungary’s 1848 revolution, the deputy PM said a nation and a community will only have a future if its members feel that their compatriots “do great things”. “This is especially true for a nation with a small population like the Hungarian nation,” he added. “We can be proud of the scientists and artists who lived throughout our history, but those who excel in their own fields are now key to survival for the nation as a whole,” the deputy prime minister said.
