Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has met with Sam Brownback, US Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, to promote the protection of persecuted Christians and the fight against anti-Semitism in Europe.
According to Bertalan Havasi, the prime minister’s press chief, the United States administration treats religious freedoms as a top priority and is extremely interested in the Hungarian government’s policies aimed at assisting persecuted Christians.
Havasi said that during the meeting, concern was expressed that “partly as a result of the migration crisis” anti-Semitism was again spreading in Europe.
Brownback briefed PM Orbán about his government’s efforts to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East return to their homes and voiced appreciation for similar Hungarian endeavors.
PM Orbán insisted that Hungarian-American relations were “excellent", while Brownback said it was gratifying that cooperation between the Hungarian and American leaderships was steadily improving.
