 The Hungarian government has passed a resolution stating that the country is ready to support the reconstruction of war-ravaged Syria through building and operating a hospital.

The resolution, published in Magyar Közlöny, the country’s official journal, details the contribution Hungary will offer to reconstruction at an international conference on assisting Syria and the surrounding region, to be held on Thursday.

According to the document, Hungary is ready to build and operate a hospital in the country in contribution to the long-term settlement of the situation in the country,  provided that security in the country reaches appropriate levels. The cabinet is prepared to designate HUF 1.575 billion in funding to the cause, the resolution claims.

 The conference on improving the humanitarian situation in the Middle Eastern country, to take place in London, is organised jointly by the British, German, Kuwaiti and Norwegian governments and the United Nations, with over seventy countries scheduled to participate. Hungary will be represented at the meeting by Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Economic Relations Péter Szijjártó.
