The Hungarian government helps Syrian Christians returning home, this is why the Deputy State Secretariat for the Assistance of Persecuted Christians in the Ministry of Human Capacities has ben established, the ruling Fidesz-KNDP’s alliance’s MEP, Gyorgy Holvenyi told public news channel M1 on Sunday.
“What is happening in Syria and the Middle East is outrageous, ethnic and Christian communities are in threat”, the Christian democratic politician said, adding that until recently, these communities were completely vulnerable. He said now there is some kind of stability, Hungary can help in these areas, among other things by coordinating the work of charity organisations.
Holvenyi pointed out that the European Union has no common policy regarding persecuted Christians, but many Western European organisations are trying to help. The people of the Middle East think that Europe can solve this problem together, he added.
