State Secretary Árpád János Potápi has said the Treaty of Trianon destroyed Hungary’s society, economy and political system.
During National Cohesion Day, Potápi said the almost 100 years that have passed since the signing of the Trianon peace treaty is proof of the strong will of Hungarians to survive and keep their country alive.
Potápi told M1 television that the treaty was “forced upon” Hungary, and signed 99 years ago on this day in the Grand Trianon chateau of Versailles.
The treaty was aimed at “destroying Hungary’s political system, as well as its economy, military and society,” he said.
Hungary’s parliament declared June 4th the Day of National Cohesion in 2010.
