Washington Ambassador: Hungary Wants to Remain a Christian Country

Hungary Today 2018.05.11.

“Hungary is a Christian country and wants to stay that way,” Hungary’s ambassador to Washington, László Szabó, said at an event in the Westminster Institute in McLean, Virginia.

In his talk on European identity and migration at the conservative think-tank, Szabó said Hungary’s constitution expresses the will of Hungarians and their conviction that Hungary is a Christian state that has been around for a thousand years.

“That matters.”

The wording of the constitution concerning its Christian foundations “is not exclusionary; it is not directed against anyone. Rather, it is the expression of self-determination.”
