Ministerial Commissioner Meets Young Uruguay Hungarians

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.07.09.

Péter Szilágyi, commissioner at the Prime Minister’s office in charge of ethnic Hungarian communities, met a group of young ethnic Hungarians from Uruguay in Parliament on Tuesday.

“Hungary will stand up for any Hungarians no matter where in the world they may live,” Szilágyi said addressing the group. “Hungary is a small nation, therefore it is crucial that those two and a half million people in the diaspora should stay in touch with the mother country.”
