Ministerial Commissioner Visits Minnesota Hungarians

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.01.28.

Hungary supports strengthening ties between diaspora Hungarians and ethnic Hungarian communities in the Carpathian Basin, ministerial commissioner Péter Szilágyi told MTI on Saturday, after visiting Hungarians in Minneapolis.

During his visit, Szilágyi visited North Memorial Hospital, the local Hungarian school, and attended an oath-taking ceremony of people granted Hungarian citizenship under Hungary’s dual citizenship programme.

Szilágyi spoke highly of the work of Hungarian volunteers at North Memorial, who collect medical supplies and send them to ethnic kin in the Carpathian Basin. “The initiative is an excellent example of cooperation between Hungarians across the world, who, despite huge distances, make an attempt to help each other in all areas of life.”
