President János Áder met delegates of the Friends of Hungary Foundation at the presidential palace in Budapest on Friday.
“With reason, talent, will and faith we will not only subdue the epidemic but also succeed in recovery,” he said.
The foundation rallies all who have faith in the crucial power of personal commitment, direct experience and recognised achievement, Áder said.

The president praised the foundation’s members for their commitment to promoting an authentic, fair picture that reflects Hungary’s genuine achievements to emerge all over the world.
In conclusion, Áder bade farewell to the participants, saying that next year they would meet a new head of state.
Friends of Hungary, founded in 2011, is a community of people living abroad who are either of Hungarian ancestry or are otherwise connected to the country. The Foundation is also the publisher of Hungary Today and our sister site Ungarn Heute. This year’s meeting was the seventh at the presidential palace.
